In an article from CNN, the observation that: “As energy demands soar in emerging markets, the advantage of more efficient and reliable American energy infrastructure is becoming increasingly important” rings true. In order for our country to remain a world competitor, it needs to create it’s own world-class energy infrastructure. America’s greatest innovations and successes are built on energy – without it, we’d be unable to be the superpower we are. Unfortunately, we’ve had to spend more money in importing our energy needs instead of producing it on our own shores. By securing our energy needs, we secure America’s future and continue our history of innovation and world leadership.
