Trump wants America to be 'energy dominant.' Here's what that means

Reporter Tried to Ask Perry About Past Trump Comment. And the Energy Sec Made Him Regret ItMore

NBC reporter Peter Alexander brought up the remarks that Perry, then a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, made in July of 2015, shortly after Trump launched his bid for the White House. "I recognize markets have had a role in the evolution of our energy mix", Perry said.

With deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders hovering nearby, Perry kept taking questions, some ranging far from his cabinet portfolio. Perry asked. "I mean, what is the other side?"

The former governor wasn't as comfortable discussing climate change, seeming to confuse GOP talking points on the issue by admitting that human activities affect the climate but insisting that the debate wasn't settled. That the data is not, from his perspective - and obviously he was a good enough scientist to be asked by the Obama administration to come in and be an undersecretary at the DOE - he doesn't think that the science is settled. "I consider those that say, 'You're a skeptic of the science, therefore you're a Luddite, ' to be the ones that are really narrow-minded". "On my watch I intend to change that, working together to find the solution to those challenges", he said.

With U.S. exports of oil and natural gas surging, President Donald Trump says the U.S.is on the brink of becoming a net exporter of oil, gas and other resources. He pitched nuclear, and coal, as an important element of national security and grid stability, by exporting those resources and technologies.

The announcement means that for travelers or refugees - if they have a relative in the United States, or some other direct tie to the USA - then those people can not be blocked by the Trump Administration from traveling here at this time. "But no reasonable person can deny the thumb, or even the whole hand if you will, that's been put on the scale in favor of certain political outcomes".

Renewable energy advocates criticized the upcoming study for presupposing its conclusions, and they have produced their own research to counter the upcoming report (Energywire, June 27).

China sentences 16 from Australia's Crown Resorts to prison
The marketing employees were detained in raids across China past year as Beijing cracks down on high-roller gambling promotions. The arrests took place in October past year , after a police operation believed to target Crown's marketing activities.

The American Petroleum Institute, which represents natural gas producers around the country, is urging the department not to move too quickly, arguing attempts to prop up so-called "baseload" plants like coal and nuclear would not do much to improve reliability.

However, Perry said he wants to eliminate policies that give preference to any one source of energy.

Asked whether intermittent renewable energy impairs grid stability, Honorable did say that renewables have distinct traits that require planning and accommodation. "Absolutely not", she said. "I said it's not the main dial..." Perry, given the mic to promote the Trump administration's energy week, regaled the press corps for 40 minutes.

Trump met with state and tribal leaders as well as energy industry association officials at the White House as part of "energy week".

"You are a climate denier", said the first demonstrator, as members of the audience booed and called for her to "sit down" and to "get her out of here".

Perry's comments follow release of a study indicating the ice sheets in Greenland and Antartica are melting much more quickly than in the past, leading to rising sea levels that will threaten coastal areas.
