Recently Tucker Perkins, President and CEO of the Propane Education & Research Council, invited Stan Cross, Electric Transportation Policy Director at Southern Alliance for Clean Energy to join him for a discussion on the pros and cons of electric and propane school buses. The invitation followed a rebuttal by Cross of Perkins’ editorial in the Tennessean. Below is Perkins’ invitation as well as links to both editorials. Trending in Propane will keep you posted on a podcast if it occurs.
The electric transportation policy director at Southern Alliance for Clean Energy submitted a pro-electric school bus op-ed in response to my opinion piece in The Tennessean (links below) about the value and health benefits of propane-powered school buses. With all due respect, this narrow perspective prevents us from achieving carbon reduction goals at the fastest pace possible. We need a wide path approach to decarbonization, which includes and extends beyond electrification. Stan Cross, would you please consider joining me on my Path to Zero podcast to discuss the pros and cons of propane and electric school buses? I think we’ll both come away winners in the fight against #climatechange.
