There has been a lot of talk about changing the way the United States gets its energy, making more of an effort to find clean energy sources like wind energy, geothermal, hydroelectric and ethanol based technology. Obama stated in his campaigning that he would make major changes during his administration on energy policies, which would reduce the emissions in our atmosphere, keep jobs ashore, and reduce our reliance on foreign energy and oil sources.
So what energy changes are being made by President Barack Obama?
- They're proposing some major energy changes in New England
- The Presidential Climate Action Project proposed many renewable energy changes for Obama to make
- At the White House, Obama's plans for energy independence have been revealed.
Energy is a huge issue in the new administration and is even more important in a downward economy. With energy prices back on the rise, it's only a matter of time before we see the high gas prices we saw just a short time ago. Being proactive can help us reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, a finite source that some estimate can be completely drained within the next 50 years.
