President Barack Obama revealed his plans for cleaner energy on Wednesday, which was also Earth Day. The intent is to use ocean and wind currents from federal waters to create electricity.
The Interior Department has been the designated the job of making the scheme come into fruition. It is all part of Obama’s goal to find new sources for fuel, decrease the United States’ dependence on oil from foreign nations, bring attention to the climate change, and in the whole process create new jobs for American citizens.
President Obama told the public that the goal is to have nearly twenty percent of the nation’s electricity come from wind power and would in the process create as many as 250,000 jobs.
Obama has called this initiative all a part of “beginning a new era in energy exploration.”
The President expressed the need for a variety of energy sources and most especially the need for new energy sources to replace more harmful and depleting ones.
As Obama continues to dive further into advancements in science, the expectancies for a cleaner American environment and more proficient medical and scientific institutions are sure to deliver on the progressions that have been hoped for by all Americans.
