Trump Administration to Embrace 'Shale Oil And Gas Revolution'

Trump Administration to Embrace 'Shale Oil And Gas Revolution'

That's a stark contrast to Obama's "climate change" webpage - Obama's White House website didn't even have a section for energy. The page's energy policy priorities include energy deregulation, increased drilling and coal mining in the U.S. The page also promises to "refocus the EPA on its essential mission of protecting our air and water", though it doesn't specify how it has lost focus of that mission.

The administration will embrace fracking.

"We must take advantage of the estimated $50 trillion in untapped shale, oil, and natural gas reserves", the statement read. They said while fossil fuels are the centerpiece of Trump's plan, there are untapped resources in energy efficiency, such solar energy and wind power, and amping up investments in clean, renewable energy nationwide will boost a job growth rate in these sectors that is already impressive. President Trump is committed to achieving energy independence from the OPEC cartel and any nations hostile to our interests.

The 45th USA president's speech was thin on policy and thick with rhetoric from the campaign trail, including his signature promise that he would "make America great again". It's great that he recognizes that cheaper energy creates jobs (by reducing costs). "If and when he and his administration try to undermine climate action, assault our democracy, or attack the people and places we love, he will face a wall of organized people who will fight him in the courts, in Congress, in the marketplace, in the states, and in the streets".

Destroying Isis will be the "highest priority" for Trump, with the possibility of coalitions mentioned. In addition, the Trump Administration will work with global partners to cut off funding for terrorist groups, to expand intelligence sharing, and to engage in cyberwarfare to disrupt and disable propaganda and recruiting. Rebuild and expand USA military, but embrace diplomacy.

The administration is calling for a moratorium on new federal regulations. More than 2,700 people have signed it thus far.

Tim Carney at the Washington Examiner noticed last night that right as Barack Obama's administration was packing up, the Department of Energy released a new rule that will likely kill off cheap incandescent three-way light bulbs. All these regulations make both the production and the consumption of goods more expensive. "America will start winning again, winning like never before".

President Donald Trump did not outline how his strategy will differ from that of his predecessor Democrat President Barack Obama, who brought together an worldwide alliance to bomb Islamic State group targets in various locations across Syria and Iraq. If our partners refuse a renegotiation that gives American workers a fair deal, then the President will give notice of the United States' intent to withdraw from NAFTA.

It can not be hammered enough: Foreign trade is not what is killing off American jobs. Trump's tactics will not bring jobs back.

The White House site says he will "rebuild" it while increasing the support for veterans.

The latter could be a reference to China, which Trump accused of using currency manipulation to undermine USA manufacturing.
