Cierra Townes Public Administration ‒ The Good, The Bad, The UglyModern Public Administration PAD500008VA016-1176-001 Professor Angela Smith July 24, 2017 Only when the last tree has died, the last river been poisoned, and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money. Cree Proverb
Every day that passes it becomes more apparent that human beings are its worst enemy. As ice caps melt, sea level rises, species decimated, crops fail, disease and hazardous conditions abound now is the time to become ever mindful stewards of the environment. The environmental changes are a direct result of human interaction/relationship to the environment, how we interact and how we must now cope with problems such as global warming, deforestation, species decimation, water pollution, toxic air emissions and countless others. As our environment changes so does the lives of the average American and the industrial complex. These problems have become serious enough to require massive expenditures and changes within the industrial market. There are some fundamental changes going on in American society and throughout the world that are impacting the way in which we live like never before. WHITE HOUSE ISSUE The Trump administration rolled out what they are calling An America First Energy Plan. While very few details are available these are epicenter of the incentive. Increasing production of fossil fuels and decreasing federal regulation. Energy policies that lower costs for hardworking Americans and maximize the use of American resources, freeing us from dependence on foreign oil. Eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule. Lifting these restrictions will increase wages by more than $30 billion over the next 7 years. Embrace the shale oil and gas, which will bring jobs and an estimated $50 trillion in untapped shale, oil, and natural gas reserves Committing to clean coal technology, and to reviving America’s coal industryEnergy independence from the OPEC cartel and any nations hostile to our interests. Energy is an essential part of American life and a staple of the world economy. The Trump Administration is committed to energy policies that lower costs for hardworking Americans and maximize the use of American resources, freeing us from dependence on foreign oil…Sound energy policy begins with the recognition that we have vast untapped domestic energy reserves right here in America. The Trump Administration will embrace the shale oil and gas revolution to
bring jobs and prosperity to millions of Americans. We must take advantage of the estimated $50 trillion in untapped shale, oil, and natural gas reserves, especially those on federal lands that the American people own. We will use the revenues from energy production to rebuild our roads, schools, bridges and public infrastructure. Less expensive energy will be a big boost to American agriculture. (The White House, 2017)
