Energy Independence

Currently we are experiencing an energy revolution, with private sector drilling and fracking in the US lowering worldwide oil prices. This revolution has the power to create new jobs and greatly stimulate our economy. We will create better-paying jobs and increase tax revenue, thereby improving our economy

The green renewable energy form has a place for incremental power for suited locations. These forms of power are not as available on demand at the present time until battery storage can compete with fossil fuel energy. Future technologies could bear this out. Nuclear power is also part of the energy mix and should be increased as a base electric power under advance safe technologies.

Our country is pursuing an energy policy that promotes economic growth and is environmentally sustainable. World-wide energy demand is increasing, which is great for the U.S. Our new energy policy should be embedded in our free enterprise system that relies on the American entrepreneurial spirit, which raised the standard of living throughout the world.

President Trump has signed an Executive Order restarting the Keystone XL Pipeline and the Dakota Access Pipeline. Under the Trump Administration we will quickly end the threat of nations using oil as an economic weapon against us. Being dependent on foreign countries means we, the #1 Superpower in the world, are susceptible to supply disruptions, price hikes and loss of wealth.

The two pipelines will create 28,000 new jobs and will also create per the State Department 42,000 jobs indirectly for companies and services used to build the pipelines. Ultimately, this will mean $2 billion in wages that comes to an average of $47,000 in wages per job. Along with this will be a significant increase in property tax revenue.

The Trump Administration is open to all forms of energy use and development of our abundantly vast resources. • Fossil fuel • Green renewable energy • Clean coal • Natural gas • Nuclear • Wind • Solar • Water • Geo-thermal • Geo-pressure • Hydro electric dams
