From The Atlantic:

Some may assume that community input will primarily hamper the construction of new oil pipelines or some such. That’s not the case, though. According to the R Street Institute, 20 of the 31 energy proposals on the federal government’s permitting dashboard are for renewable projects, another five are for electricity transmission, and just six involve fossil fuels (two were for liquefied natural-gas facilities, two for interstate natural-gas pipelines, one for offshore oil and gas, and one for replacing an existing pipeline). In 2022, making it harder to build disproportionately harms renewable-energy infrastructure.
