Perry Calls For 'Intellectual' Debate On Man's Role

President Donald Trump listens in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington Monday

He mistakingly labeled the United States as an energy exporter, correcting himself after checking his notes again.

WASHINGTON - The natural gas industry is raising concerns about Energy Secretary Rick Perry's order to study whether current regulations and tax policies are threatening the reliability of the power grid by boosting some electricity sources over others - read as an effort to revive struggling coal and nuclear plants. Perry told host Joe Kernan that carbon dioxide was not "the primary control knob" for climate change. Despite the heaps of global research on these impacts, this a coded line of questioning that many Republicans in Congress lean on, particularly Texas' own Lamar Smith, the chair of the House science committee who's accused multiple government agencies of falsifying climate change data. "I agree with them it's nonsense", he added. The industry consensus is that so far, natural gas is the driving force behind coal power plant closures. President Trump drew some unwanted attention to coal power plants when he withdrew the USA from the Paris Agreement on climate change earlier this month, and a new report from the consulting firm M.J. Bradley & Associates highlights the impact that coal-sourced electricity has on pollutants including sulfur dioxide and mercury as well as greenhouse gas emissions.

'I have not had an opportunity to have that discussion, ' Sean Spicer said the day after Trump pulled out of the Paris agreement. "We just got a recipe for it this morning, but I'm still not quite sure what it means", she said.

The DOE's study is about the reliability of the electricity grid and whether federal policies to support renewable power have done more harm than good. For those of you new to the topic, Perry ordered the study earlier this year. "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".

"The most incredible story in the U.S. has been the evolution and the prolific production of renewable resources in the U.S.", Honorable said.

Trump reiterated the need to end restrictions on energy production activities and roll back environmental regulations that prevent it.

Asked whether intermittent renewable energy impairs grid stability, Honorable did say that renewables have distinct traits that require planning and accommodation. "And one of those, I would find it really interesting - our French friends are very comfortable getting 76 percent, thereabouts, of their energy from nuclear, and I can assure you they're very fond of getting it at the rate they're getting it". "Trying to get the price up a little bit", Trump said.
