Trump pushes 'energy week' and goal of exporting resources

Trump is also expected to touch on opportunities for other energy exports, such as usa -designed technology that draws energy from the wind and sun.

During a briefing with reporters Monday, Perry suggested the administration would back the end of a lucrative tax credit for renewable energy - which was extended in 2015 as part of bipartisan deal to end a ban on USA oil exports. The Trump Administration wants to achieve "energy dominance", according to Perry.

"I'm confident that, working together, we can usher in a golden age of American energy dominance and the extraordinary financial and security benefits that it brings to our citizens, not only the Native Americans, but all over the country", Trump told reporters in prepared remarks before the meeting. Yesterday, at a press briefing at the White House - it's apparently supposed to be "Energy Week" - Perry used similar phrasing, calling for "an intellectual conversation" on global warming.

During his meeting with a group of energy leaders in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, Trump told them that the USA was becoming more and more energy-dominant. I've said that time after time. "Intellectually engaged, not screaming at each other, and not standing up in the middle of my speeches and saying you're a climate denier, when the fact is, I just want to have a conversation about this". Among his first moves was to take steps to dismantle the Clean Power Plan, which imposed tight emissions restrictions that would force the shutdown of many coal plants. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article. While man is "having an effect" on climate, he said, "most likely the primary control knob is the ocean waters and this environment that we live in". All Perry says he wants is a free exchange of ideas, with people of good faith sharing evidence as part of an open, deliberative process.

"Leaders from the coal, petroleum, natural gas, electric, renewable, and nuclear energy sectors" were present at the event, according to the conference description.

"Do I believe that [renewable energy deployment] has impacted grid reliability?" "But no reasonable person can deny the thumb, or even the whole hand if you will, that's been put on the scale in favor of certain political outcomes".

"We're trying to absorb and digest" what dominance is, she said. "And to say that Washington, D.C., can come up with a one-size-fits-all solution to health care that's going to address all of this and do it in an economically feasible, thoughtful way is just so much nonsense".

The president is scheduled to speak on the topic of energy exports Thursday.
