Rick Perry talks nuclear energy research investment, Paris Agreement

01 July 2017

"Today's conversation is a chance for these state, local and tribal leaders to discuss how we can cooperate and support them even more in unleashing these domestic energy reserves", he said.

In a May letter to Perry, four renewable energy groups said the study was based on a "faulty premise ... that renewable generation is responsible for the retirement of coal and nuclear generation resources, and that the loss of those resources will lead to declining reliability of the grid". Several climate scientists have asked for just that kind of a conversation. "In climate science unresolved questions remain ― issues that now lack conclusive evidence".

"No", Perry answered. "What I said was climate is changing, always has".

Perry has talked about the importance of advancing technologies to capture coal plant carbon emissions during appearances this week at the White House.

"The climate is changing, man is having an impact on it". He acknowledged that in 2007, the Supreme Court clearly ordered the EPA to issue an endangerment finding on whether climate change endangers public health.

"I mean, what is the other side?"

Girardi wants to wait a couple of days to see how the 6-foot-6 left-hander feels before projecting his return to the rotation. He said to the New York Daily News , "I was in tears, because I know what it takes to get here, and how hard he's worked".

Four other renewable energy organizations, representing power sources like hydro, geothermal and biomass, wrote to Perry supporting the study, saying "federal and state support" such as tax credits and state renewable energy goals have prioritized wind and solar, to their detriment.

As ABC News reported, Energy Secretary Rick Perry said Monday the Trump administration is confident officials can "pave the path toward USA energy dominance" by exporting oil, gas and coal to worldwide markets, and promoting nuclear energy and even renewables such as wind and solar power. "These politically driven policies, driven primarily by hostility to coal, threatens the reliability and the stability of the greatest electrical grid in the world", he said. When they shifted from "energy dominance" to Trump's views, Perry adopted Press Secretary Sean Spicer's tried-and-true response: "I have not had that conversation with him", he said.

Echoing Trump's "America first" pledge, Perry said "we want energy that is made in America, for the good of America and American jobs and the energy security of the world".

The president is scheduled to speak on the topic of energy exports Thursday. "Invite all of you to come and see it", Perry said.

"The most incredible story in the U.S. has been the evolution and the prolific production of renewable resources in the U.S.", Honorable said. "And one of those, I would find it really interesting - our French friends are very comfortable getting 76 percent, thereabouts, of their energy from nuclear, and I can assure you they're very fond of getting it at the rate they're getting it". And while the Trump administration has sought to differentiate itself from the Obama White House, its position on USA energy exports is very similar in some regards. The guest list includes representatives from the oil and gas sector, utilities and the nuclear power industry. GAIL expects to receive supplies from early next year.
