Service + Solidarity Spotlight: Boilermakers Advocate for Diversified Energy Strategy at Hydrogen Summit

Cory Channon explains why the Boilermakers union is committed to stopping climate change

Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.

With hydrogen gaining global interest in the mix of evolving climate change solutions, members of the Boilermakers (IBB) joined “Renewable Hydrogen: Energy’s Future,” a union-hosted summit in Bilbao, Spain, in June. IBB International Director of Climate Change Policy Solutions Cory Channon served on a panel to discuss the Boilermakers’ position on an “all of the above” energy approach and solutions—including carbon capture, use and storage and hydrogen—that can provide reliable energy and preserve or create jobs.

“We need all energy options: wind, solar, hydro, nuclear, fossil fuels and hydrogen. And we need to deploy all solutions that can stop climate change,” Channon said. “We can’t cherry pick the solutions that fit neatly into a narrow narrative, and we’re not working together as we should be.”
