Obama’s Lonely Road on Energy
From SF Gate
By David Baker
When it comes to America’s energy future, Pres. Obama seems determined to lead from the center.
But is anyone following?
In his State of the Union remarks last night, Obama touted the success of his “all of the above” energy policy. He boasted of rising oil and natural gas production, declaring that the nation is closer to energy independence than it has been in years. He noted that tougher mileage standards for cars have cut the amount of oil we consume. He bragged about the explosive growth of solar power, with a new PV array installed somewhere in the country every four minutes. And he hammered home the need for cleaner energy sources to fight climate change.
“Taken together, our energy policy is creating jobs and leading to a cleaner, safer planet,” he said.
