A non-profit group that researches energy regulations is suing the State Department for information about a green energy lobbyist who coordinated with China to push Obama-era climate policies.
The Institute for Energy Research filed a lawsuit Wednesday against the Trump administration seeking records related to lobbyist Jennifer Morgan’s push for China to adopt U.S. climate policies while she worked for the World Resources Institute (WRI). IER suggests the Obama administration helped WRI aid the Chinese government…
E&E Legal filed a similar lawsuit in 2017 for information on Morgan’s communications with State Department officials about her lobbying efforts. E&E obtained records showing Morgan boasted that China’s National Center for Climate Change Strategy and International Cooperation (NCSC) had “approached” WRI to coordinate think tanks and other advocates.
