Trump says US on brink of become net exporter of energy

President Donald Trump listens in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington Monday

President Donald Trump says the U.S.is on the brink of becoming a net exporter of oil, gas and other resources.

Energy Secretary Rick Perry said Tuesday that he believes climate is changing and man is having an impact on it, but how much much effect that is and what the U.S.is going to do to affect that is up for debate.

"President Trump wants America to achieve energy dominance, utilizing our abundant domestic energy resources for good, both here at home and overseas", Perry said.

At the White House, Energy Secretary Rick Perry said the 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.

Speaking at the White House before a meeting with state, local and tribal leaders, the president made clear he'll prioritize energy development as a way to spur economic growth.

If Rick Perry wants to get up to speed and participate in those discussions, I'm sure he could find some scientists who'd donate their time and help him understand the issues about which he's still confused.

"That's his vision for America-an all of the above energy policy", Perry said. This Brattle Group projection of total US generation additions and retirements between 2010 and 2020 highlights the fall of coal as a central part of many regions' grid power mix.

As Bloomberg reported: "The fact that we're no longer in the age of energy scarcity - that we're in the age of energy abundance - positions the United States in a totally different place", said Dave Banks, a special assistant to the president for global energy.

"Answer my question, why will you not say that climate change is caused by carbon dioxide?" she pressed. "If we do not, then China and Russian Federation will fill that void", he said. How much effect is what's at debate here? He pitched nuclear, and coal, as an important element of national security and grid stability, by exporting those resources and technologies.

India already has long-term gas import deal with US.

Many current and future energy projects to be focused on replacing aging coal-powered plants and adding more alternative energies to the grid mix. And they're not the only energy experts saying so.

Energy Secretary Rick Perry says 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.

"They recognized us as a (nation) back in the 1830s, so we actually have a close personal relationship with the French", he said.

"Energy policy is not just a vital element of US economic policy but also a vital element of usa foreign policy", he said.

In particular, low natural gas prices and declining hardware costs for wind and solar power are the bigger factors pushing coal and nuclear power plants out of the mix.

"What is energy dominance? Absolutely not", she said. Merchant power companies and industry experts have long said that economics favor natural gas.

While observers do not expect Republicans to embark on an effort to rescind tax breaks for renewable power, like the production tax credit for wind, Perry said earlier this week that everything should be on the table when discussing tax reform.
