ALEC calls for penalties on 'freerider' homeowners in assault on clean energy | World news | theguardian.com

Over the coming year, the American Legislative Exchange Council (Alec) will promote legislation with goals ranging from penalising individual homeowners and weakening state clean energy regulations, to blocking the Environmental Protection Agency, which is Barack Obama's main channel for climate action.

Details of Alec's strategy to block clean energy development at every stage – from the individual rooftop to the White House – are revealed as the group gathers for its policy summit in Washington this week.

About 800 state legislators and business leaders are due to attend the three-day event, which begins on Wednesday with appearances by the Wisconsin senator Ron Johnson and the Republican budget guru and fellow Wisconsinite Paul Ryan.

Other Alec speakers will be a leading figure behind the recent government shutdown, US senator Ted Cruz of Texas, and the governors of Indiana and Wyoming, Mike Pence and Matt Mead.

A warm place with no memory.
"Clean" energy is inherently wrong. it's dead-end policy.A lost cause.

Improved efficiencies in hydrocarbon production, transportation, refining, and marketing produce the most jobs, the most GDP, the best balance of payments, and the most efficient return on investment. Of any energy source.
