Governor Gordon wants Wyoming to achieve ambitious goal of making Wyoming net negative in CO2 emissions and making carbon capture a reality.
“Wyoming can and must be a leader in (carbon capture) and other emerging technologies, even as we pursue the development of resources such as wind and solar,” he said. “Our long history of working with coal, oil and natural gas, and regulating its related impacts to protect and enhance other natural resources, such as wildlife, is well established. Wind and solar development must be held to the same standards.”
Governor Gordon emphasized the need for the state to retain a “broad energy portfolio” that includes both fossil fuels and renewables. “As Governor, my position remains clear and firm. I will continue to fight for our state’s future, and defend the right to responsibly develop all of our resources,” the Governor said.
