On the Senate confirmation of Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Saturday morning’s Mainichi predicted that the Trump administration will reverse the Obama administration’s “pro-environment” policy and promote the domestic energy industry, as the new energy chief is apparently skeptical of global warming. The daily wrote that Japan is paying keen attention to the USG’s new energy policy in the belief that the active development of resources in the U.S. such as shale gas and oil will help Japan diversify its energy supply sources and import petroleum and natural gas at lower prices.
