ABSTRACT
The article looks at the differences between the energy policy views of the two U.S. 2012 presidential candidates, incumbent Democrat Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney. The candidates' focus on the energy industry as a source for job creation in the U.S. is noted. Topics include Romney's belief that the U.S. should open up more federal lands and offshore sites for fossil fuel recovery, Obama's decision to postpone the construction of the Keystone XL petroleum pipeline for further study of its environmental impact, and government regulation of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking.
