Neither candidate has proposed the development of an integrated energy policy which will look at all potential uses of our energy resources and also the relationship to fresh water usage. Petroleum is primarily used for transportation fuel while coal, uranium and renewable resources are primarily used for electricity generation. Natural gas is unique in that it has many applications such a heating fuel, transportation fuel, electricity generation, chemical feedstock, and agricultural chemicals. This is why an integrated policy is required so that resources are evaluated for all potential uses.
