Yesterday the Trump administration put out a press release titled “President Donald J. Trump Unleashes America’s Energy Potential”. In it, the release describes how Trump has done this: Withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord Rescinding the Obama Administration’s Clean Power Plan Fast-tracking approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline Ending the Obama Administration’s coal leasing moratorium on Federal land Rescinding the Obama Administration’s Stream Protection Rule Directing the Department of the Interior to reconsider the Obama Bureau of Land Management’s Hydraulic Fracturing Rule Notice anything missing? The 771-word press release that describes how Trump is “achieving American energy dominance” has exactly zero references to renewable energy sources. It brags about how the energy sector employs 6.4 million Americans and how it is “a leading driver in hiring American workers”, adding 300,000 new jobs last year.
