Jen Schneider

Jen Schneider published a piece in the journal Frontiers in Communication: Science and Environmental Communication. Co-authored with Jennifer Peeples of Utah State University, “The Energy Covenant: Dominance and the Rhetoric of the Aggrieved” explores the Trump Administration’s guiding energy policy ideology of “energy dominance,” a notable shift from decades of “energy security” rhetoric.

It also analyzes how Secretary of Interior Ryan Zinke uses “energy covenant renewal” to frame the importance of energy dominance.
