The Energy 202: Trump says he has an ‘all-of-the-above’ energy strategy, but coal gets top billing

For the first time in 14 years, the president did not give a nod to any form of alternative energy in the State of the Union address. The annual speech to Congress is a chance for the commander in chief to stake out his aspirations for the country. But during the speech on Tuesday, that vision returned to the past, when much of the nation was powered by, in his words, “beautiful, clean coal.” President Trump did not name check any energy source except coal, despite the Trump administration having officially adopted an “all-of-the-above” policy that includes energy development beyond fossil fuel to help reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil.
