TRUMP: "I am especially proud to be the first president in decades who has started no new wars."
Marc Morano: Thank you, Mr. President! You have achieved what few Presidents have when it comes to securing the U.S.'s national security. Your energy policies contributed greatly to achieving no new wars. Previous Presidents paid lip service to "energy independence" but during your administration, you not only achieved it, but you also went one step better -- you presided over an American energy renaissance that led to U.S. energy dominance!
In 2019, “U.S. energy exports exceeded imports for the first time since 1952,” the EIA reported. The EIA also reported, “In 2019, U.S. energy production exceeded energy consumption for the first time since 1957,” when Dwight D. Eisenhower was president. Trump's energy achievements were so off the charts that the last time the U.S. saw this kind of energy dominance was when Harry S. Truman was president in 1952!
Senator Manchin's 2010 campaign ad shotting Cap-and-Trade bill.
The senator who once put a bullet through the Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade bill for a campaign ad will become an even more important gatekeeper on climate change this year. West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin will take over the Energy and Natural Resources Committee as soon as next week as his party promises to push increasingly ambitious ideas against global warming.
Manchin: "I am an all-in energy person. I want to use all the resources we have. My first and foremost thing on this Energy Committee is to do everything I can to maintain energy independence in the United States of America...I think Joe Biden understands that there is going to be fracking in this country if we are to be energy independent, and there is a better, cleaner way of doing it."
Morano: "It is amazing to me that everyone here believes that you can legislate in Pennsylvania -- a better climate by raising energy costs harming yourself economically, and turning over energy decisions to politicians lobbyists and activists who are going to join up with other states and try to dictate Pennsylvania energy policy."
"And this is the key, Pennsylvania has been the energy success story of America, you have led the way in our CO2 reductions if you really cared about CO2 reductions you would be embracing your fracking revolution you would be embracing Pennsylvania's energy legacy instead you're turning it over to a cap and trade carbon taxation scheme that's going to raise the cost of energy for Pennsylvania's have no impact not only on the weather, but it couldn't they won't even impact global CO2 levels in any way shape or form."
"We hear people like John Kerry and others warning of this national security threat of climate change, well what security dread is going to be, then to shoot ourselves and our own foot by hampering domestic energy production in Pennsylvania leading the way with fracking. What's that gonna mean we're going to rely on foreign sources of energy, we're going to have to go back to fighting Middle East wars to get oil and energy when there's no reason to when we're energy dominant for the first time since Harry Truman was president."
Rupert Darwall: Before Trump, Republicans were losing the energy war by not fighting it. “Our security, our prosperity, and our environment all require reducing our dependence on oil,” President George W. Bush declared in January 2008. The transition from the Bush to the Obama presidency was well-nigh seamless in this regard. “We have known for decades that our survival depends on finding new sources of energy,” President Obama said in his first address to Congress.
Britain said it planned to treble tree planting rates over the next three years to help reach its target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050, as part of efforts to fight climate change..."We will make sure that the right trees are planted in the right places and that more green jobs are created in the forestry sector," Eustice is due to say, according to a government statement published on Sunday.
