Fact Sheet: President Obama's Blueprint to Make the Most of America's Energy Resources, January 26, 2012   [open pdf - 22KB]

From the January 26, 2012 White House fact sheet: "In his State of the Union Address, President Obama laid out a Blueprint for an America Built to Last, underscoring his commitment to an all-of-the-above approach that develops every available source of American energy. This commitment includes the safe and responsible production of our oil and natural gas resources. Today, American oil production is at the highest level in eight years and last year we relied less on foreign oil than in any of the past 16 years. At the same time, the President believes we need to double-down on clean energy in the United States. Transitioning to cleaner sources of energy will enhance our national security, protect the environment and public health, and grow our economy and create new jobs. Over the past few years, renewable energy use has nearly doubled. In fact, in 2011, the United States reclaimed the position as the world's leading investor in clean energy -- but staying on top will depend on smart, aggressive action moving forward. President Obama will begin the second day of his post-State of the Union swing with an event at a UPS [United Parcel Service] facility in Las Vegas, focusing on the importance of American workers developing American-made energy for an economy that's built to last. Following this event, the President will travel to Buckley Air Force Base in Aurora, Colorado to deliver remarks on American energy and the steps his Administration is taking to promote energy security."
