Clay Siegall Efforts to Improving Cancer Patients’ Life

A post in Clay Siegall’s WordPress Page about the effects of Paris Accord Withdraw, says the withdrawal does not have a big effect on the production of energy in the United States. According to Robert Godby, the director of the Center for Energy Economics and Public Policy at the University of Wyoming, the decision that mattered to people in Wyoming was the one the administration agreed they do not support Clean Power Plan. Natural gas has been a preferred way of energy production because it is cheaper to use as compared to coal. This has led to the need of fewer miners of coal and people are moving out of the state to get employment. However, Robert foresees an increase in jobs in the US as technology continues to advance.
