Trumpwatch 2 Energy

Energy policy. Discuss.

Rescind all job-destroying Obama executive actions. Mr. Trump will reduce and eliminate all barriers to responsible energy production, creating at least a half million jobs a year, $30 billion in higher wages, and cheaper energy.
Shale energy production could add 2 million jobs in 7 years.
The oil and natural gas industry supports 10 million high-paying Americans jobs and can create another 400,000 new jobs per year. [The New York Times, June 20, 2015]

CONTRAST WITH HILLARY CLINTON
Clinton has vowed to “defend and build on” the Obama Administration’s anti-coal regulations, which has earned her support from environmentalists but led to concerns from labor unions.

All areas.

    Trump is the beginning of the end of the Global Warming scam.

    The bullshit has gone on long enough.

    Thanks for the ongoing cheap fuel and economic debasement of the fascist middle eastern crap holes President Trump!

    The oil ticks must be shitting broken glass about now.

    This is one of those policies that the whole GOP and business elite agree on, so it has high chances to be implemented.

    Out of everything, this seems like the big easy win.

    It’s a no brainer.

    And if rumors are true that republicans are literally already working out budgets with funding for the wall, we might really see major change in the USA.

    One of the greatest a*seholes is our very own leader of the former liberal party of Australia.

    And if John Howard thinks he is the current endowment of Edmond Burke then he and his believers have no class at all.

    And I will merely remind 3 things;

    1 Created the forbringer of the scum politics we now have for the stealing free energy market;
    2 Propped up his useless brother and unleashed f*cking unionism in a way never seen before; and
    3 Took away all opportunity for real Australians to defend themselves with guns against the a*seholes his government let in.

    Never tell me that John Howard is a great Australian.

    Trump is making all the right noises. If he can manage a few highly visible runs on the board early, it might just be that he can reignite that can-do attitude which the US was famous for mid last century.. If he manages that he can do anything. Prosperity will follow.

    Contrast it with the policies of our so-called Conservative government who are basically implementing left-wing policies but are doing so at a slightly slower pace than the Left would.

    The only defence Frydenberg could mount on Bolt’s radio show this week was to argue that “at least we’re not as bad as Labor or the Greens”. Hopeless.

    The Turnbull coalition is a job destroying, anti-humanist and anti-business government. It is every bit as despicable as Labor/Green.

    Rudd/Gillard lives on in Turnbull.

    Agreed.

    Frydenberg and his mob of chicken shits are WORSE than Labor and the Greens with a Leader reeking of Green Politics since his day as Chairman of Goldman Sachs a Clinton favourite.

    Makes it even worse b/c we expect better, different from them, silly us!

    I made a quick scan of several key policy areas and my overwhelming sense was “at last an adult is in charge.” Let’s pray that this acts as an example to people everywhere so they can see the difference between the childish and irresponsible regressive left and a government that has the interests of ordinary people at heart not those of criminals, illegal immigrants fellow travellers.

  13. Nerblnob

    Not exactly good news for us drillers outside the USA, since lower oil prices means less drilling but certainly better for the wider public.

    Such policies would make more difference in Australia, where regulatory overkill and activism are a much bigger obstruction than in the USA..

    Let’s see what happens.

    If he and America are successful, then hopefully our jelly backed politicians will take note and do something pro-Australia for a change.

    Al Gore created the problem.

  16. Cradock's Choice

    Make America energy independent,

    Good long term policy for Australia – we need the USA to be the sole global maritime superpower.

    Declare American energy dominance a strategic economic and foreign policy goal of the United States.

    As above. Good for Australia and the global strategic dominance of the Anglosphere (which includes Japan, Singapore and Taiwan)

    Unleash America’s $50 trillion in untapped shale, oil, and natural gas reserves, plus hundreds of years in clean coal reserves.

    Part of the above. Bad news for Australia as it will increase competition in our Asian energy markets.

    Become, and stay, totally independent of any need to import energy from the OPEC cartel ….

    Good for us.

    Open onshore and offshore leasing on federal lands, eliminate moratorium on coal leasing, and open shale energy deposits.

    This will dump vast energy stocks into the markets. This will offer us heavy competition and is a danger to our offshore gas sector.

    Encourage the use of natural gas and other American energy resources that will both reduce emissions but also reduce the price of energy and increase our economic output.

    Wow, someone who understands competitive advantage in business cost inputs. This will re-industrialise much of the USA.

    There is massive danger to us in our coal and gas export markets in this policy, and that danger becomes very bad if we do not adopt the same policies.

    If, and only if, this destroys the cretinous cli-fi retards and their policies of suicide will we escape heavy economic damage.

    A rational government would now walk away from all that cli-fi garbage and have as a major policy position the reduction of energy costs in Australia to the lowest possible level.

    So we can trust Lord F**kup of Wentworth, Official Sucker of every greenies c*ck, to do the exact opposite.

    What do Cats think Frydenberg should do ? He has to work within the cabinet or do you think He should resign? Listen to what he also says eg how much wind turbines will costs, fossil fuels are needed for energy , we have to keep energy costs down .
    I have just skimmed through Trump Policies many make sense and using money saved from AGW and improving infrastructure and jobs will help.

  18. Crossie

    Both China and India are concerned that US will back out of the Paris deal, they can see their competitive edge slipping away. Besides, who will now buy Chinese produced solar panels and windmills?

    How dare Trump look after his own country’s best interests?

  19. egg_

    This is one of those policies that the whole GOP and business elite agree o

    Thus, the pendulum will swing in the other direction from Green tokenism?

    At a consumer level, worldwide Neodymium (‘rare earth magnets’) may return to sensible prices and return as lightweight, (more) powerful (high end) loudspeakers being more common again (your earbud earphones likely contain them).

    The oil ticks must be shitting broken glass about now.

    I am genuinely surprised Trump survived the campaign without being shot.

    Roll-the-coal; drill-baby-drill; and a sensible revival of nuclear and hydro will do more to crush oil-funded Wahabbi extremism than any number of B-2 bombers.

    ( Noting the impotence of the US military as the State Dept compound in Benghazi was overrun and the CIA Annex besieged. See ’13 Hours’ – a movie that should in a just world have ended Hillary Clinton’ political career right then and there ).

    Energy policy alone will transform the US.

    Cradock

    There is massive danger to us in our coal and gas export markets in this policy, and that danger becomes very bad if we do not adopt the same policies.

    A revitalised US energy sector represents a competitive threat. This will either force change or Australia will get left behind.

    Absent a vastly changed external dynamic – the Australian energy sector will be killed by the NGOs, activists , NIMBYs and bureaucrats. Not ‘IF’ – merely ‘WHEN’.

    The worst a competitive US energy sector can do is bring to a head the day Australia either accepts regressing to a nation of basket weavers and organic farmers with a deep drop in the standard of living for the Proles or enough people decide to fight for jobs and prosperity. I confess – I am not optimistic – too many people here think The Government will eventually cater to all their needs. #Veneztralia

    If he has any self respect left, he should resign his ministry. Turnbull won’t be around forever and Josh made a stupid mistake joining the Turnbull crowd.

    Better to be on the inside than the outside to bring about change. Ciobo was impressive on Insiders this morning.
