what is the position of congress today?



  1. 0 Votes

    If you mean what is the position of Congress on the environment, the answer varies. On energy and climate change policy, Congress wants to increase America’s energy independence so that we’re not reliant on oil from the Middle East. Much of Congress supports increased domestic production of oil shale and natural gas and some Members also support renewable energy like solar and wind. Congress doesn’t have a united position on climate change. Some elected officials think it’s a total farce and have tried to strip the EPA of its authority to reduce carbon emissions.

    On environmental preservation, most Members support the national and state parks systems but some disagree on the extent to which hunting, mining and oil production should happen on protected land.
