US National Security Strategy: Energy to the Poor

The US National Security Strategy released yesterday, states:
  • Climate policies will continue to shape the global energy system. 
  • U.S. leadership is indispensable to countering an anti-growth energy agenda that is detrimental to U.S. economic and energy security interests. 
  • Given future global energy demand, much of the developing world will require fossil fuels, as well as other forms of energy, to power their economies and lift their people out of poverty. The United States will continue to advance an approach that balances energy security, economic development, and environmental protection. 
  • The United States will remain a global leader in reducing traditional pollution, as well as greenhouse gases, while expanding our economy. 
  • This achievement, which can serve as a model to other countries, flows from innovation, technology breakthroughs, and energy efficiency gains, not from onerous regulation.

We read that the US will counter the anti-growth energy agenda of the rich world embraced by Obama-Merkel and now also Macron along with rich Sweden (see previous post), which is detrimental to US interests as well as to those of the developing world in need of fossil fuels to lift their people out of poverty.

This is Trumps Christmas present to the world and represents a truly remarkable case of independent thinking, probably based on a gut feeling that the scientific support of CO2 alarmism is very weak and thus it is pointless and immoral to require the poor people of the world to stay poor.
