President Obama Travels the World but Leaves U.S. Energy Behind


WASHINGTON, D.C., November 9, 2009 -
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia L’Aquila, Italy Massachusetts, U.S.A. Louisiana, U.S.A. President Obama Travels the World but Leaves U.S. Energy Behind

On Thursday, President Obama kicks off his tour of Asia, which includes stops in Japan, Singapore, China and South Korea. During his travel, we’ll send out postcards from U.S. Energy sources to President Obama to highlight specific examples of international energy development that should be included in his Administration’s energy strategy.

As you can see in the map above, President Obama (on Air Force One) has already visited four other stops that symbolize how his Administration hasn’t moved forward with all-of-the-above American energy development:

  • L’Aquila, Italy – the 2009 G8 Summit (View the postcard from U.S. Nuclear Energy)

    While many G8 Countries (France, Japan, and Germany) have embraced carbon-free nuclear power, the Obama Administration did not include nuclear in its job-killing National Energy Tax plan.

  • Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts (View the postcard from U.S. Wind Energy)

    During President Obama’s vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, he unfortunately did not take time to publically support the nearby Cape Wind project – America’s first offshore wind farm.

  • New Orleans, Louisiana (View the postcard from the U.S. Outer Continental Shelf)

    During President Obama’s brief afternoon visit to New Orleans, he missed an opportunity to learn how new technology has made offshore drilling an environmentally safe practice that creates high-paying jobs.
