Trump pushes 'energy week' and goal of exporting resources

Share

A ban on exporting US oil and gas was lifted under the Obama administration.

That's how an "energy dominance" concept described by Energy Secretary Rick Perry entered the lexicon Monday, following earlier weeks devoted to gauzy ambitions for infrastructure, worker apprenticeships, and technology.

"No references to Trump tweets, TV interviews, websites, etc.", said Andy Grewal, a law professor at the University of Iowa.

"If you don't know someone in the United States, if you don't have a job offer or admission to a University-then the travel ban applies to you", said immigration lawyer Mana Yegeni. "It's now time to listen". "We can do good for both, and we will", he said.

"Instead of preaching about clean energy, this administration will act upon it", he said. "I want it to be America". He also says the usa will promote nuclear energy and even renewables such as wind and solar power.

But LNG, which Perry touted as "very clean burning", and coal - an industry championed by Trump during his 2016 campaign - dominated the secretary's discussion on the third floor of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.

Trump's speech comes a week before he meets in Warsaw with leaders of a dozen central and eastern European nations who are eager to see more US liquefied natural gas (LNG) in their markets as an alternative to Russian gas. "Trying to get the price up a little bit", he said in the Rose Garden.

While there was no detail given on whether the decision was unanimous, or how the Justices came down on the Trump travel and refugee order, three Justices - Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch, wrote that they would have allowed the entire Trump Administration plan to take effect without any limits.

He will also participate in a panel with Trump and other top administration officials on "Energy Dominance" at the Energy Department's headquarters Thursday, but it will be closed to the public.

He has rejected the Obama administration's Paris commitment, forged among almost 200 nations, including India and China, which calls on signatories to cut greenhouse gases to zero in the second half of this century. In addition, he applauded the President for pulling out of the Paris Agreement saying that it "was a shakedown of the United States taxpayer". Perry said Monday, June 26, that the Trump administration is confident officials can "pave the path toward US energy dominance" by exporting oil, gas and coal to markets around the world, and promoting nuclear energy and even renewables such as wind and solar power.

But he said the administration would not be "wildly supportive" of subsidizing any sectors of the energy industry. He declined to add specifics, noting he didn't want to get ahead of the president. Similarly, during his administration Obama spoke about an "all of the above" energy policy meant to reassure skeptics that he supported a wide range of USA energy production.
