What a bunch of malarkey as the VP would say! Export our energy, indeed. All these panaceas offered up are just that. It is plea to sell off our assets and needs for quick up front profit, not for the nation, but for a few large energy corporations already on the public dole. These resources are finite, and unless we have electrical power storage developed (that is of far greater capacity than now), we should be doing measured controlled extraction only for our needs. The current extraction of gas is immensely dirty on the front end and the methane lost is about 25 times worse than CO2 on the use end. Nuclear (uranium) is nastier as nation after nation finds out. And in the the end the public pays the toll in clean-ups, health, and tax burdens. The thin films of air and water can not support the damages our present course takes us and we are seeing the effects today.

Today is time to develop the electrical power storage technology and retire the fossil fuel market. The petroleum industry will have to settle with the plastics and chemical needs. As for nuclear, it will have certain specifics in propulsion and small power sources, but technology must get much better before it has any place in electrical power generation for grids. Possibly thorium reactors would work somewhat better. But with electrical power storage, just natural occurring electrical generation (as seen in lightning) would meet our power needs for transportation, heating, agriculture, manufacturing, etc.
