Secretary of Energy Rick Perry recently posted a “Game of Thrones” inspired video, saying “a new American energy era is coming.”
In a tweet Sunday, Perry celebrated the administration’s success before the first episode aired of the final “Game of Thrones” season.
The video featured a speech where Perry touted U.S. energy achievements, including increased exports of coal and oil. He also reaffirmed the country is not running out of energy resources.

“Energy independence used to be a sound bite, but now it’s reality,” stated Secretary Perry. “Curtailing it would erase today’s great economic gains and environmental achievements, while limiting tomorrow’s innovative solutions to our biggest challenges.”
The United States Energy Information Administration predicted a ten-percent increase in exports this year.
