Energy and American Power


#1

When U.S. President Barack Obama took office, the country's energy future would have been listed among its liabilities. That is no longer the case.

While singing the praises of Obama, this article seems to have misplaced credit where credit is due. My sister had been working in the private sector on several of these "revolutionary" technologies that have changed our energy future since GWB took office.

There are bus loads of scientists and engineers from a wide variety of disciplines who have spent a good part of their careers on these technological developments that have changed our energy future.

Obama is not one of them.

Despite his best efforts. If your foreign policy is so abysmal that it eclipses any liability incurred by energy policy, is that a success?
