September 12, 2011

“The U.S. unemployment rate and the millions of Americans desperately looking for jobs continue to be of great concern to this country.  There is no doubt that a great many new jobs can be created in the American energy industry over the next decades.” said Frank Stewart, President and CEO of the American Association of Blacks in Energy.    He continued, “This week the President will address the nation on the jobs issue and the Super Committee will start its work to solve the U.S. debt crisis.  An abundant supply of affordable energy will be essential to bringing about a strong recovery and allow our economy to grow.  The U.S. is blessed to have a variety of very viable energy options.  We need to keep in mind our full range of responsibilities and obligations as we address these opportunities.  We need to get this right.”
