Overview
The economic downturn and high energy prices have prompted calls for U.S. energy independence as a means to both create jobs and reduce the price of gasoline. The fossil energy industry and its allies, sensing opportunity, have sought to define the sole purpose of public lands as energy production. This grant to the Center for American Progress would support its efforts to create a counter campaign calling for a balanced approach to energy development on public lands. Its goal is to ensure that any energy development occurring on public lands is offset, acre for acre, with protection of natural areas. To reach its goal, the Center will enlist other conservation organizations in a focused communications campaign in which diverse voices from around the West speak on behalf of land protection.

Grants to this Grantee
for building U.S. capacity to shape the strategy and narrative on climate cooperation and competition with China  
To support Center for American Progress's work to strengthen U.S. capacity on U.S. China climate partnership. The grant will build bipartisan consensus on a path for America's international climate policy. It strives to reframe the U.S. thinking about the role of U.S.-China relations in the climate policy and target context, focusing on tools that increase the cost of emissions and boost clean alternatives from China. Longer term, Center for American Progress will form a network to inform and convince the US policy makers that the U.S. can shift the emissions trajectory of the world's two largest emitters – U.S. and China - by adopting an accountable framework in international trade, development and diplomacy.
