How to Build the Future of Oil & Gas in America
We can do a lot more to help the American economy in this era of climate change.
It is time to shift our energy strategy away from fossil fuels and toward renewable energy sources.
I am calling on companies that have invested in the development of shale oil and gas resources to join me in this effort.
It’s a simple but crucial step: Get out and drill!
The next phase of this transition is a transition to natural gas and solar.
Energy independence is no longer an option.
We can’t afford to wait for a catastrophe to cause an abrupt shift to renewables.
We must get the oil and the gas industry to invest in clean energy technologies that will save Americans money and energy.
We need to do more to diversify our energy portfolio, as we are the only advanced nation without a fully functioning national energy system.
In addition, we need to help companies and individuals that are investing in renewable energy in the oil & gas sector to make it happen.
The next step in this transition will be to help businesses develop clean energy jobs and energy efficiency programs.
I will also continue to work with the Trump administration to encourage and support the transition to renewable energy.
As I’ve said before, we must have a fully working national energy grid, and we must do all we can to support the development and deployment of renewables.
These are critical steps, and I am proud to say that the president is actively supporting these efforts.
I have been a champion for the clean energy economy, and as a result, the president’s plan is an excellent example of how we can build a clean energy future that will generate jobs and economic growth.
I’ll be making a more detailed speech next week on this important issue.
The American people should know that the administration is committed to ending climate change, and that President Trump has been an ally on this issue.
We’re all on the same page when it comes to this.
It would be a tragedy if we lost our way and failed to act.
As a consequence, the United States has a great opportunity to lead the world in the fight against climate change by working with our partners in the private sector to take these critical steps.
I look forward to working with President Trump and his administration to put this transition in motion, which I think will be a very successful accomplishment.
The first priority is getting oil and natural gas production out of the ground, because we need that production to meet the growing demand for oil and energy that is coming our way.
I want to encourage more American companies to take advantage of the new opportunities in this sector.
I also want to reiterate that the U.S. will continue to be a leader in the global fight against terrorism and we are determined to make sure that we remain the best security partner that we can be to our friends and our allies.
This is an urgent matter, and it will require all of us to take the lead on it.
So, what are the biggest challenges that we face as we prepare for this transition?
The biggest challenges are not going to be technical or technological.
They’re going to come down to economics.
We have to make a strategic choice to shift from a low-carbon energy economy to a high-carbon one.
It will take a huge amount of energy, and, unfortunately, we have not made a very good start.
That’s because our economy is based on fossil fuels, which are very costly to produce and operate.
That is not an ideal model for the future of the United State.
We should be focused on diversifying our energy sources and on transitioning to renewables, which will create jobs, stimulate economic growth, and reduce our carbon footprint.
We will also need to change our energy policies, including the way we regulate carbon pollution.
I don’t want to get into too much detail on that right now, but the fact of the matter is that we are moving into a new era in which we have to deal with these issues.
We don’t have a crystal ball that will predict the future.
But I will say this: We are in a very different environment than we were in a decade ago.
The U.N. Climate Change Convention has come into force, and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change is now in effect.
That means that countries can legally ratify the Paris agreement and we can go into the Paris climate negotiations.
In my view, it’s a good thing that we did that, because this is a very significant milestone in the transformation of our energy future.
We are going to have to continue to make these decisions with a much greater degree of transparency and accountability.
The president is working very closely with the U;S.
delegation on the Paris accord, and he’s encouraged us to ratify it.
We also need a lot of leadership from all sectors of the economy.
I think the economy is the engine that drives the country and drives our country’s competitiveness.
We all know that energy is a critical part of
