On April 26, U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich of New Mexico sat down for an interview with Canary Media Senior Reporter Julian Spector. They discussed how clean energy is now a critical component of energy security, a fact made stark by Russia’s war in Ukraine. Heinrich argues that Russia uses energy as a weapon, and the U.S. should use clean energy to undercut demand for Russia’s fossil fuels. Rapidly deploying electric heat pumps in the U.S. and Europe can enhance security while helping households lower their energy bills, Heinrich argues. He also discusses how to expand domestic sources of critical minerals for clean energy while protecting the environment.
