Energy in the State of the Union

By Eric Wolff, Politico.

STATE OF THE SOTU: President Obama will make his final State of the Union speech tomorrow night, and despite a preview video promising the “this address will be for you,” the White House is being tight-lipped about the specifics of the speech. Observers aren't expecting any big energy-related announcements, not least because Obama rolled out many of his top policy goals last year. While climate and energy issues may get less attention this year compared to previous speeches, greens see an opportunity for the president to tout his climate change accomplishments, including EPA's regulations for power plants and the Paris global warming deal, in the speech.
