Here's the summary: President Obama’s Blueprint for a Clean and Secure Energy Future
The United States is on the path to a cleaner and more secure energy future. Since President Obama took office, responsible domestic oil and gas production has increased each year, while oil imports have fallen to a 20-year low; renewable electricity generation from wind, solar, and geothermal sources has doubled, and the amount of energy our economy wastes has continued to decline; clean energy manufacturing is creating new jobs in industries like solar and wind, and technology and production costs are dropping because of discoveries in the lab and innovation on the factory floor. The President’s “all-of-the-above” approach to develop every source of American energy – expanding oil and gas production and investing in new clean energy technologies – is working. It’s a winning strategy for the economy, energy security, and the environment.
