“The only way I think we’re going to see this kind of change is if you take the oil sands and put it into the power grid, or the gas, coal, and nuclear plants that are generating electricity in this country.
And then take all the other kinds of energy that are being produced right now and put them in the ground.
So I’m talking about a massive investment in wind, solar, biomass, and other renewables.
That would change the entire energy landscape.
I’m also talking about building a lot of infrastructure, so that we don’t just rely on fossil fuels.
It’s not going to happen overnight.”—Nancy Pelosi, U.N. climate envoy in the Obama administration, November 2018.
