Trump Says US Will Dominate World Energy Production

Rick Perry gets handsy with Sarah Huckabee Sanders at briefing

"President Trump affirmed that the United States continues to remove barriers to energy development and investment in the United States and to U.S. energy exports so that more natural gas, clean coal, and renewable resources and technologies are available to fuel India's economic growth and inclusive development", President Donald Trump said in after meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

WASHINGTON-U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry said his "marching orders" from President Donald Trump aren't merely to push the energy independence, but to leverage the nation's resources to advance its interests. He also said new discoveries in carbon capture for coal-fired power plants might surprise the world soon.

Now, low natural gas prices are might achieve those goals without such regulations, the Energy Department. It's not really relevant to how electricity is produced today...

The report, launched in April by Energy Secretary Rick Perry, is aimed at identifying government regulations and policies that the agency says improperly favor renewable energy over traditional fuels like coal and nuclear.

"How many coal plants?"

At the culmination of the White House "Energy Week", Trump is set to announce a comprehensive review of USA nuclear regulation, stopping short - for now - of the big federal interventions advocates say are needed to revitalize the industry, which is struggling to compete against cheap natural gas and dispose of its radioactive waste. "It's done. If you don't believe that, you're a skeptic, a Luddite, '" Perry said".

The initial deadline is looming at the end of June and Perry has already pushed the release date back a week or so. "Rhetoric can't save plants that are losing money in the face of natural gas".

The impacts of fracking are getting fresh attention in IL this week, as local activists respond to a permit application that would bring the first such drilling operation to the state. The underground disposal of wastewater from both fracking and conventional drilling in that state has been linked to swarms of earthquakes. The nuclear assessment is set to go further than other, more discrete reviews by analyzing an array of regulatory challenges and possible prescriptions for fixing them.

Meanwhile over in upstate NY, local stakeholders have raised new concerns about the disposal of construction debris from Pennsylvania fracking operations. However, there are also very solid conclusions that are based on decades of research and multiple lines of evidence. "An energy-dominant America will export to markets around the world, increasing our global leadership and influence", he added. That has given natural gas plants a decided advantage over coal and nuclear, which can not as easily be taken off line and restarted.
