America First

america first400x400We subscribe to an America First foreign policy which is characterized by the belief in the strength and the character of the American people. It is not an isolationist policy but rather one which prioritizes the security and safety of American people and the sanctity of American laws, values and culture. We believe in treaties and tariffs which strengthen our diplomatic and economic prowess including a stronger NATO and USMCA, a peace through strength Middle East policy and a roster of alternative trade partners to China.

Renewables Dominate The Headlines, But Oil And Gas Remain King

Renewables Dominate The Headlines, But Oil And Gas Remain King Authored by Irina Slav via OilPrice.com, The transition to a global energy system that runs on renewable energy rather than finite and dirty coal, oil, and gas is arguably the number-one topic in the media, sometimes eclipsing even the pandemic. Yet, for all the enthusiastic talk, it seems that we are nowhere near accomplishing the transition—and it may already be too late to do anything about climate change anyway, according to some climate scientists. “Embedded power structures and support for a dying industry”: these are the factors that are keeping oil and gas as the world’s main sources of energy, according to the chief executive of one environmental nonprofit organization.

It is much more about embedded power structures and continued support of dying industry.”  It is very likely that Muffett is referring to government subsidies for the oil and gas industry in countries such as the United States or the UK, as well as many developing nations.

As Muffett puts it, the energy transition is “primarily a matter of political will and economic choices.” Indeed, it is a matter of political choices. Virtually every reputable energy authority has repeatedly said that it is up to the politicians to make sure the transition
