This chapter argues that there is a fundamental conflict between Barack Obama's energy policy and his position on climate change, that the two are incompatible. It analyses administration policy in the second term to show that Obama's energy security strategy has since 2012 seen not only continued but expanded exploration and exploitation of conventional and unconventional fossil fuels. While Obama came to power in 2008 on a wave of promises of hope and change, when it comes to energy security, the Obama administration has represented more continuity than change. He has achieved some changes in energy policy, notably some increases in domestic renewable energy production and energy efficiency. The chapter then outlines and compares the discourse to his policies. Obama's discourse on energy security shows a significant amount of continuity with previous administrations, particularly in the continued focus on energy independence through the all-of-the-above strategy.
