Obama’s State of the Union Address sparked continued discussion of energy reform and the ongoing debate about climate change. Here’s our rundown on what the president has proposed as a part of his agenda this past Tuesday.
- Obama called Congress to action to issue legislation that seeks to quash carbon pollution while promoting the production of clean energy.
- Taking the energy crisis and rising environmental concerns seriously, Obama expressed his intention to develop executive actions in conjunction with his cabinet to make strides in reducing pollution, dealing with the effects of climate change, and rapidly evolving the sustainable energy market.
- Talk of an Energy Security Trust is in the works, which would use revenue from federal oil and gas production to fund research and technology to end the need to use oil as automotive fuel.
- Obama also announced his intention to promote the development of cleaner-burning natural gas with Congress’ help in order to protect the environment.
