Energy experts sound alarm on Europe's energy crisis as 'clear and present warning' for America

FIRST ON FOX: A group of energy and environment experts are sounding the alarm on U.S.

climate policy and pointing to Europe's crisis as an example of "blindly" abandoning energy security.

— to consider how green policies have contributed to the energy crisis in Europe.


The six energy experts penned the letter to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on Tuesday.

In recent months, European consumers and businesses have been hit with massive energy bills due to Russia's invasion of Ukraine, which upended global oil and gas markets due to Russian producers' dominance, and an aggressive transition to green energy sources like wind and solar pushed by several major European nations.

Amid the crisis, Europeans have been forced to take drastic measures to conserve energy and keep bills low while governments have imposed rationing rules and introduced relief programs.


"For political reasons, Europe chose to rely on renewable energy and also oil from hostile sources — in this case being Russia," James Taylor, the president of think tank Heartland Institute, told FOX Business in an interview.

"What I'm hearing from the eco left is that the solution to our energy problems is more wind and solar — we just haven't done enough of it," Wrightstone told FOX Business in an interview.

While energy analysts have warned that Europe may be turning to green sources of energy too quickly, European Union leaders have doubled down on the transition.

Windmills and solar panels are pictured at a renewable energy facility in Lexington, Oregon, on May 24.

And that started the energy crisis because if there's no wind, then you have to burn more natural gas."
