WEEKLY ADDRESS: An All-Of-The-Above Approach to American Energy


WASHINGTON, DCIn this weeks address, President Obama spoke to the American people about the importance of taking an all-of-the-above approach to addressing our nations energy challenges. With only 2% of the worlds oil reserves, we cannot simply drill our way to lower gas prices, as some in Washington have suggested. Americans understand that we must have a long-term strategy that uses every available source of energyincluding oil, gas, wind, solar, nuclear, biofuels, and more. We also cannot fail to recognize the important role that increasing the efficiency of our cars and trucks can play in both reducing our dependence on oil and saving consumers money at the pump. Finally, at a time when oil companies are making record profits and American families are paying record prices, we must end, once and for all, the $4 billion a year in tax breaks oil companies receive. There are no quick fixes to this problem, but together we can make a serious effort to overcome our energy challenges and help create American jobs. Remarks of President Barack Obama As Prepared for Delivery The White House Saturday, February 25, 2012 Hello, everybody. In the State of the Union, I laid out three areas we need to focus on if were going to build an economy that lasts: new American manufacturing, new skills and education for American workers, and new sources of American-made energy. These days, were getting another painful reminder why developing new energy is so important to our future. Just like they did last year, gas prices are starting to climb. Only this time, its happening earlier. And that hurts everyone everyone who owns a car; everyone who owns a business. It means you have to stretch your paycheck even further. Some folks have no choice but to drive a long way to work, and high gas prices are like a tax straight out of their paychecks. Now, some politicians always see this as a political opportunity. And since its an election year, theyre already dusting off their three-point plans for $2 gas. Ill save you the suspense: Step one is drill, step two is drill, and step three is keep drilling. We hear the same thing every year.

Well the American people arent stupid. You know thats not a plan especially since were already drilling. Its a bumper sticker. Its not a strategy to solve our energy challenge. Its a strategy to get politicians through an election. You know there are no quick fixes to this problem, and you know we cant just drill our way to lower gas prices. If were going to take control of our energy future and avoid these gas price spikes down the line, then we need a sustained, all-of-the-above strategy that develops every available source of American energy oil, gas, wind, solar, nuclear, biofuels, and more. We need to keep developing the technology that allows us to use less oil in our cars and trucks; in our buildings and plants. Thats the strategy were pursuing, and thats the only real solution to this challenge. Now, we absolutely need safe, responsible oil production here in America. Thats why under my Administration, America is producing more oil today than at any time in the last eight years. In 2010, our dependence on foreign oil was under 50% for the first time in more than a decade. And while there are no short-term silver bullets when it comes to gas prices, Ive directed my administration to look for every single area where we can make an impact and help consumers in the months ahead, from permitting to delivery bottlenecks to whats going on in the oil markets. But over the long term, an all-of-the-above energy strategy means we have to do more. It means we have to make some choices. Heres one example. Right now, four billion of your tax dollars subsidize the oil industry every year. Four billion dollars. Imagine that. Maybe some of you are listening to this in your car right now, pulling into a gas station to fill up. As you watch those numbers rise, know that oil company profits have never been higher. Yet somehow, Congress is still giving those same companies another four billion dollars of your money. Thats outrageous. Its inexcusable. And it has to stop. A century of subsidies to the oil companies is long enough. Its time to end taxpayer giveaways to an industry thats never been more profitable, and use that money to reduce our deficit and double-down on a clean energy industry thats never been more promising. Because of the investments weve already made, the use of wind and solar energy in this country has nearly doubled and thousands of Americans have jobs because of it. And because we put in place the toughest fuel economy standards in history, our cars will average nearly 55 miles per gallon by the middle of the next decade something that, over time, will save the typical family more than $8,000 at the pump. Now Congress needs to keep that momentum going by renewing the clean energy tax credits that will lead to more jobs and less dependence on foreign oil. Look, we know theres no silver bullet that will bring down gas prices or reduce our dependence on foreign oil overnight. But what we can do is get our priorities straight, and make a sustained, serious effort to tackle this problem. Thats the commitment we need right now. And with your help, its a commitment we can make. Thank you.

The first question is: What sort of thing is "true" or "false"? The simplest answer would be: a sentence. "Columbus crossed the ocean in 1492" is true; "Columbus crossed the ocean in 1776" is false. This answer is correct, but incomplete. Sentences are true or false, as the case may be, because they are "significant," and their significance depends upon the language used. If you were translating an account of Columbus into Arabic, you would have to alter "1492" into the corresponding year of the Mohammedan era. Sentences in different languages may have the same significance, and it is the significance, not the words, that determines whether the sentence is "true" or "false." When you assert a sentence, you express a "belief," which may be equally well expressed in a different language. The "belief," whatever it may be, is what is "true" or "false" or "more or less true." Thus we are driven to the investigation of "belief."

Number is a collective noun that can take a singular or plural verb depending on how you use it. If you put the definite article the in front of number, you are stipulating one particular number, even if of and a series of things comes next. Therefore, you must use a singular verb with number preceded by "the": The number of lab coats available is limited. On the other hand, if you put the indefinite article a before number, you must use a plural verb: A number of lab coats are available.

WEEKLY ADDRESS: An All-Of-The-Above Approach to American Energy

WASHINGTON, DCIn this weeks address, President Obama spoke to the American people about the importance of taking an all-of-the-above approach to addressing our nations energy challenges. With only 2% of the worlds oil reserves, we cannot simply drill our way to lower gas prices, as some in Washington have suggested. Americans understand that we must have a long-term strategy that uses every available source of energyincluding oil, gas, wind, solar, nuclear, biofuels, and more.

We also cannot fail to recognize the important role that increasing the efficiency of our cars and trucks can play in both reducing our dependence on oil and saving consumers money at the pump. Finally, at a time when oil companies are making record profits and American families are paying record prices, we must end, once and for all, the $4 billion a year in tax breaks oil companies receive.

There are no quick fixes to this problem, but together we can make a serious effort to overcome our energy challenges and help create American jobs.
