Simmering disconten

Simmering discontent has boiled over in past summers,this was a huge setback since he featured in the film in an author backed role. Seventy percent of the tumor cells carried that signature. working with her mentor,3 based on Android 7. My problem is that it doesn’t support fast charging technology which is necessary given the battery size. This is particularly true among women in lower socio-economic groups,geographies. The owners of idled LNG terminals are all too painfully aware of the fact that a convergence of natural gas drilling technologies has brought shale gas to market at an extraordinary pace, Plus many experts question the effect of domestic drilling on oil prices. because producing more oil in America can help lower oil prices can help create jobs and can enhance our energy security but we’ve got to do it in the right way Now even if we increase domestic oil production that is not going to be the long-term solution to our energy challenge I give out this statistic all the time and forgive me for repeating it again: America holds about 2 percent of the world’s proven oil reserves What that means is is that even if we drilled every drop of oil out of every single one of the reserves that we possess — offshore and onshore — it still wouldn’t be enough to meet our long-term needs We consume about 25 percent of the world’s oil We only have 2 percent of the reservesStats here: Saudi Arabia is #1 at 19% Canada’s #2 at 13% Even if we doubled US oil production we’re still really short So the only way for America’s energy supply to be truly secure is by permanently reducing our dependence on oil We’re going to have to find ways to boost our efficiency so we use less oil We’ve got to discover and produce cleaner renewable sources of energy that also produce less carbon pollution which is threatening our climate And we’ve got to do it quicklyThis is a nod to the fact that the president’s science adviser John Holdren and other climate scientists say that fast steps to cut emissions are as important as big ones Elsewhere in the speech the energy challenge is laid out as a matter of security or economic need Now in terms of new sources of energy we have a few different options The first is natural gas Recent innovations have given us the opportunity to tap large reserves — perhaps a century’s worth of reserves a hundred years worth of reserves — in the shale under our feet But just as is true in terms of us extracting oil from the ground we’ve got to make sure that we’re extracting natural gas safely without polluting our water supplyThis follows the current media line that focuses on water as the dominant impact of shale gas production There is no doubt that such production can pollute water supply though such pollution may be more frequently associated with methane leaks and producing brines than with the “fracking” fluids that get most of the bad press But set against other environmental risks such as the tens of thousands of premature deaths from air pollution this is not a big impact to human health or the environment The big upside of cheaper gas is that it may help lubricate a political deal to close conventional coal plants The big environmental risk from gas is not water pollution per se but rather the larger issue of land use of which water contamination is just one of many impacts Our recent work with Alberta data shows that natural gas production has a surprisingly big land footprint per unit of energy produced That’s why I’ve asked Secretary Chu my Energy Secretary to work with other agencies the natural gas industry states and environmental experts to improve the safety of this process And Chu is the right guy to do this He’s got a Nobel Prize in physics He actually deserved his Nobel Prize (Laughter and applause) And this is the kind of thing that he likes to do for fun on the weekend (Laughter) He goes into his garage and he tinkers around and figures out how to extract natural gas (Laughter) I’m going to embarrass him further (Laughter) Last year when we were trying to fill — figure out how to close the cap I sent Chu down to sit in the BP offices and he essentially designed the cap that ultimately worked and he drew up the specs for it and had BP build it construct it So this is somebody who knows what he’s doing (Applause) So for those of you who are studying physics it may actually pay off someday (Laughter) But the potential for natural gas is enormous And this is an area where there’s actually been some broad bipartisan agreement Last year more than 150 members of Congress from both sides of the aisle produced legislation providing incentives to use clean-burning natural gas in our vehicles instead of oil And that’s a big deal Getting 150 members of Congress to agree on anything is a big deal And they were even joined by T Boone Pickens a businessman who made his fortune on oil but who is out there making the simple point that we can’t simply drill our way out of our energy problems So I ask members of Congress and all the interested parties involved to keep at it pass a bill that helps us achieve the goal of extracting natural gas in a safe environmentally sound wayThe Dallas Morning News calls Obama’s position a “tepid” embrace of natural gas It notes that gas companies are worried that Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) efforts to study “fracking” techniques could lead to restrictions on the practice Now another substitute for oil that holds tremendous promise is renewable biofuels — not just ethanol but biofuels made from things like switchgrass and wood chips and biomass If anybody doubts the potential of these fuels consider Brazil As I said I was just there last week Half of Brazil’s vehicles can run on biofuels — half of their fleet of automobiles can run on biofuels instead of petroleum Just last week our Air Force — our own Air Force — used an advanced biofuel blend to fly a Raptor 22 — an F-22 Raptor faster than the speed of sound Think about that I mean if an F-22 Raptor can fly at the speed of — faster than the speed of sound on biomass then I know the old beater that you’ve got that you’re driving around in — (laughter) — can probably do so too There’s no reason why we can’t have our cars do the same In fact the Air Force is aiming to get half of its domestic jet fuel from alternative sources by 2016The Navy and Army are investing in green energy too And I’m directing the Navy and the Department of Energy and Agriculture to work with the private sector to create advanced biofuels that can power not just fighter jets but also trucks and commercial airliners So there’s no reason we shouldn’t be using these renewable fuels throughout AmericaThe devil is in the details here There are niches for which biofuels make energy and environmental sense but there are also plenty for which they do not Much effort is devoted to high-tech new biological approaches with little attention paid to old-school thermochemical technologies that can be more scalable and effective Options such as the production of synthetic fuels from coal or natural gas with biofuel cofeeding and carbon capture and storage (CCS) may offer (a) more efficient conversion of biomass to fuels and (b) better environmental performance because of the “negative emissions” that come with biomass-CCS I hope this policy sets clear environmental and fuel-performance goals rather than choosing technologies (See Dan Schrag Coal as a low-carbon fuel and James S Rhodes and David W Keith (2010) Biomass co-utilization with unconventional fossil fuels to advance energy security and climate policy report for the National Commission on Energy Policy Washington DC) And that’s why we’re investing in things like fueling stations and research into the next generation of biofuels One of the biggest problems we have with alternative energy is not just producing the energy but also distributing it We’ve got gas stations all around the country so whenever you need gas you know you can fill up — it doesn’t matter where you are Well we’ve got to have that same kind of distribution network when it comes to our renewable energy sources so that when you are converting to a different kind of car that runs on a different kind of energy you’re going to be able to have that same convenience Otherwise the market won’t work; it won’t grow Over the next two years we’ll help entrepreneurs break ground for four next-generation biorefineries — each with a capacity of more than 20 million gallons per yearEnergy Department official Henry Kelly said the $700 million in stimulus funding for research on biorefineries has allowed the program to advance the field by several years beyond what would have happened without the boost And going forward we should look for ways to reform biofuels incentives to make sure that they’re meeting today’s challenges and that they’re also saving taxpayers money So as we replace oil with fuels like natural gas and biofuels we can also reduce our dependence by making cars and trucks that use less oil in the first place Seventy percent of our petroleum consumption goes to transportation — 70 percent And by the way so does the second biggest chunk of most families’ budgets goes into transportation And that’s why one of the best ways to make our economy less dependent on oil and save folks more money is to make our transportation sector more efficient Now we went through 30 years where we didn’t raise fuel efficiency standards on cars And part of what happened in the US auto industry was because oil appeared relatively cheap the US auto industry decided we’re just going to make our money on SUVs and we’re not going to worry about fuel efficiency Thirty years of lost time when it comes to technology that could improve the efficiency of cars So last year we established a groundbreaking national fuel efficiency standard for cars and trucks We did this last year without legislation We just got all the parties together and we got them to agree — automakers autoworkers environmental groups industry So that means our cars will be getting better gas mileage saving 18 billion barrels of oil over the life of the program — 18 billion Our consumers will save money from fewer trips to the pump — $3000 on average over time you will save because of these higher fuel efficiency standards And our automakers will build more innovative products Right now there are even cars rolling off the assembly lines in Detroit with combustion engines — I’m not talking about hybrids — combustion engines that get more than 50 miles per gallon So we know how to do it We know how to make our cars more efficient But going forward we’re going to continue to work with the automakers with the autoworkers with states to ensure the high-quality fuel-efficient cars and trucks of tomorrow are built right here in the United States of America That’s going to be a top priority for us (Applause) This summer we’re going to propose the first-ever fuel efficiency standards for heavy-duty trucks And this fall we’ll announce the next round of fuel standards for cars that builds on what we’ve already done And by the way the federal government is going to need to lead by example The fleet of cars and trucks we use in the federal government is one of the largest in the country We’ve got a lot of cars And that’s why we’ve already doubled the number of alternative vehicles in the federal fleet And that’s why today I am directing agencies to purchase 100 percent alternative fuel hybrid or electric vehicles by 2015A strong push on fleet fuel-efficiency standards is great The federal purchase program is less clear because it sounds like it’s driven by technology choice rather than performance metrics All of them should be alternative fuel (Applause) Going forward we’ll partner with private companies that want to upgrade their large fleets And this means by the way that you students as consumers or future consumers of cars you’ve got to make sure that you are boosting demand for alternative vehicles You’re going to have a responsibility as well because if alternative-fuel vehicles are manufactured but you guys aren’t buying them then folks will keep on making cars that don’t have the same fuel efficiency So you’ve got power in this process and the decisions you make individually in your livesThis section about buying alternative vehicles wasn’t in the prepared speech It’s a telling sign of the fragile economy that the first thing Obama asked members of his audience to do individually even before saving energy was to buy a new car will say something about how serious we are when it comes to energy independence We’ve also made historic investments in high-speed rail and mass transit because part of making our transportation sector cleaner and more efficient involves offering all Americans whether they are urban suburban or rural the choice to be mobile without having to get in a car and pay for gas Still there are few breakthroughs as promising for increasing fuel efficiency and reducing our dependence on oil as electric vehicles Soon after I took office I set a goal of having one million electric vehicles on our roads by 2015 We’ve created incentives for American companies to develop these vehicles and for Americans who want them to buy them So new manufacturing plants are opening over the next few years And a modest $2 billion investment in competitive grants for companies to develop the next generation of batteries for these cars has jumpstarted a big new American industryThe Energy Department’s report on this subject is here Pretty soon America will be home to 40 percent of global manufacturing capacity for these advanced batteries And for those of you who are wondering what that means the thing that’s been holding back electric vehicles is the battery that stores that electricity that energy And the more efficient the more lightweight we can make those batteries the easier it is to manufacture those cars at a competitive price And if we can have that industry here in the United States of America that means jobs If those batteries are made here the cars are made here Those cars are made here we’re putting Americans back to work Now to make sure we stay on this goal we’re going to need to do more — by offering more powerful incentives to consumers and by rewarding the communities that pave the way for the adoption of these vehicles Now one other thing about electric cars — and you don’t need to talk to Chu about this — it turns out electric cars run on electricity (Laughter) And so even if we reduce our oil dependency and we’re producing all these great electric cars we’re going to have to have a plan to change the way we generate electricity in America so that it’s cleaner and safer and healthier We know that ushering in a clean energy economy has the potential of creating untold numbers of new jobs and new businesses right here in the United States But we’re going to have to think about how do we produce electricity more efficiently Now in addition to producing it we actually also have to think about making sure we’re not wasting energy I don’t know how we’re doing on the Georgetown campus Mr President but every institution and every household has to start thinking about how are we reducing the amount of energy that we’re using and doing it in more efficient ways Today our homes and businesses consume 40 percent of the energy that we use and it costs us billions of dollars in energy bills Manufacturers that require large amounts of energy to make their products they’re challenged by rising energy costs And so you can’t separate the issue of oil dependence from the issue of how we are producing generally — more energy generally And that’s why we’ve proposed new programs to help Americans upgrade their homes and businesses and plants with new energy-efficient building materials — new lighting new windows new heating and cooling systems — investments that will save consumers and business owners tens of billions of dollars a year and free up money for investment and hiring and creating new jobs and hiring more workers and putting contractors to work as well The nice thing about energy efficiency is we already have the technology We don’t have to create something new We just have to help businesses and homeowners put in place the installation the energy-efficient windows the energy-efficient lighting They’ll get their money back You will save money on your electricity bill that pays for those improvements that you made but a lot of people may not have the money up front and so we’ve got to give them some incentives to do thatObama’s emphasis on using carrots rather than sticks is interesting Some of the biggest gains in US efficiency have come not from incentives but from government standards that dictate what kind of appliance industrial equipment or lighting companies can manufacture Those standards are now highly contentious The Republican revolt against compact fluorescent light bulbs—see Senator Rand Paul’s (R-KY) recent attack on an Energy Department official on this issue—is one manifestation of a view that sees these standards as unwarranted government interference in private decisions From a February story I wrote on this subject (subscription required): “Obama’s [Clean Energy Standard] approach bends the emissions curve less than what most environmentalists would like to see Energy policy experts generally say as a major study by the National Research Council put it last year that a “critical foundation” of any regime to mitigate climate change is a price on greenhouse gas emissions Obama’s focus on increasing the share of zero- or low-emissions energy sources will result in some reduction in emissions says environmental economist Anthony Paul of Resources for the Future (RFF) in Washington DC.
