N. America could be global energy juggernaut - US

North America could become the "energy juggernaut of the world" and supply the whole globe with energy, United States Senator Joe Manchin said on Monday during the World Economic Forum annual meeting 2022 in Davos, Switzerland.

The US needs to be "self-reliant" and "cut dependency" on Asia and China in particular as Beijing could "weaponize" its minerals supply, according to Manchin. Besides energy and climate issues, which are interdependent, Congress has to solve the inflation situation that is "hurting everyone," as well as drug pricing, he added.

During the same event, Republican Senator Roger Wicker mostly criticized US President Joe Biden's domestic energy policy and stressed that the GOP will likely win the upcoming midterm elections, but could lose them only if the Republicans "try" to lose.
