On May 7, President Bill Clinton advocated for more U.S. policies to address climate change. Speaking at the Peter G. Peterson Foundation Fiscal Summit, Clinton pushed for policies that promote domestic natural gas, calling the fuel an important bridge between oil and renewable energy. He also encouraged policies that reduce emissions of short-living greenhouse gases like black carbon and methane; creating policies for these short-term emissions would create more time to address long-term, clean energy solutions. Clinton said the policy should not abandon solar and wind energy in areas where prices are falling.
