Saudi Fucking Arabia! The biggest petrostate can see the future. While here in the Greatest Country on Earth the dancing Energy Secretary left wind and solar out of a report on federal energy subsidies.
Perry wrote in the memo, first reported by Bloomberg, that the United States is “blessed as a nation to have an abundance of domestic energy resources, such as coal, natural gas, nuclear, and hydroelectric.” These sources provide a “stable, reliable and resilient grid,” he explained. Nowhere in the memo did Perry list wind, solar, or energy storage as options for grid reliability.
Nice job Rick Perry when you make the Saudis look more reasonable, scientific and forward thinking. That’s how bad this Trump crowd is. The people who behead people at least use their heads in regards to energy.
“We have the potential to become a global renewable energy powerhouse,” Saudi Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih told a crowd of investors on Monday.
