The United States is way behind where it should be in helping to build the energy future of developing countries around the world, according to Quill Robinson, the vice president of Government Affairs at the American Conservation Coalition

Robinson says that nuclear energy is the future and that other countries are playing a bigger role in their exports than the U.S. 

"Just about a month ago, I was in Egypt at the climate conference in Sharm el Sheikh," Robinson said on Monday's edition of the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "It turns out that Russia was building a nuclear reactor for Egypt. It turns out that Russia actually controls two-thirds of all nuclear exports around the world."

Robinson said that the United States should not be allowing its adversaries to be building the energy future of developing countries.

"An example of what we could be doing is helping to deploy clean energy  nuclear energy, other types of energy  that will reduce the rest of the world's emissions to these developing nations," Robinson stated.

According to Robinson, the U.S. represents about 11% of global greenhouse gas emissions and has a pretty good track record of reducing its own emissions.

He said that environmental issues such as climate change really matter to young voters and it's important for the GOP to address them if they want to get the youth vote. 

"Our polling has showed that a vast majority of Americans are looking for solutions that will reduce the cost of living and reduce the cost of energy, but also tackle this really important issue of climate change," Robinson said. "It turns out a lot of voters feel deeply about this issue."

"Neither party has really addressed it in a way that is all that convincing," Robinson continued. "So I think it's an important lesson that Republicans and Leader McCarthy and other Republicans have a strong mandate going to the next Congress and actually push forward some climate solutions."
