Trump says US on brink of become net exporter of energy

A coal mound stands at the NRG Energy Inc. WA Parish generating station in Thompsons Texas. Trump wants the US to develop more coal

That position places the oil and gas lobbying giants firmly on the side of the renewable energy industry, which has expressed concern Perry's study is nothing more than an attempt to prop up the coal sector - a favorite of President Trump's - at the expense of what is now a years long boom in wind and solar installations.

As articulated by Perry, the new Trump "energy dominance" theme relies heavily on increasing exports of natural gas.

"Can we agree that we ought to have a conversation as a people, intellectually engaged, not screaming at each other, no standing up in the middle of my speeches and calling me a 'climate denier.' When the fact is, I just want to have a conversation about this", he said.

"And later this week we'll have an important announcement on the President's agenda in terms of how it will help establish American energy dominance, " Spicer noted.

Meyers pointed out, "When you look at the winners and losers of this bill, it is nearly comically villainous". Meyers also updated his viewers on the latest development in Trump's sacking of FBI Director James Comey .

'I have not had that conversation with him, ' Perry told reporters during a televised question and answer session. "I mean this is America, let's have a conversation", he said. The industry consensus is that so far, natural gas is the driving force behind coal power plant closures. "They're just not", said Perry, reverting to well-worn lines from his days as a governor and presidential candidate.

"First we'll attack the conventional wisdom that says you can't drive the economy without harming the environment", Perry said. All Perry says he wants is a free exchange of ideas, with people of good faith sharing evidence as part of an open, deliberative process.

"And we've done this through innovation and technology, not by signing agreements", he said.

At the same time, he said climate science requires more debate. It has been widely criticized prior to release, based on its questionable authorship, scanty 60 day deadline, failure to involve any experienced grid stakeholders, and a memo from Perry that front-loaded the study in favor of coal.

"These politically driven policies, driven primarily by a hostility to coal, threatened the reliability and the stability of the greatest electrical grid in the world", Perry said at the U.S. Energy Information Administration's annual conference. And they're not the only energy experts saying so. He also says the usa will promote nuclear energy and even renewables such as wind and solar power. "We are working to find the right balance so that we have a diverse supply of energy that's clean and affordable, and a grid that is safe and reliable".

RICK PERRY: I'm only going to give you one more chance.

"We're trying to absorb and digest" what dominance is, she said.

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. "You have a lot of energy", said one reporter during the afternoon press conference.

Here's what happens now that Bill Cosby's jury is deadlocked
Bill Cosby leaves the Montgomery County Courthouse during his sexual assault trial, Wednesday, June 14, 2017, in Norristown, Pa. The third count goes to intent, or whether Cosby intentionally administered an intoxicant to Constand that night in his home.

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.
