After several reporters grilled him on climate change, Perry spoke about the importance of expanding nuclear energy to reduce emissions.
NBC reporter Peter Alexander brought up the remarks that Perry, then a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, made in July of 2015, shortly after Trump launched his bid for the White House.
Trump has so far issued executive orders aimed at promoting fossil fuels, but debates over energy policy are destined to be components of bigger fights such as tax reform or infrastructure.
That position places the oil and gas lobbying giants firmly on the side of the renewable energy industry, which has expressed concern Perry's study is nothing more than an attempt to prop up the coal sector - a favorite of President Trump's - at the expense of what is now a years long boom in wind and solar installations. "On my watch I intend to change that, working together to find the solution to those challenges", he said.

He was also emphatic in his support for nuclear power, pointing to France as a nation that relies on the energy source for a majority of its power.
"Your review offers an opportunity to better understand the impacts these policy decisions have had, not only on our industries, but also on the grid itself", the groups said.
Traditional sources of electricity, such as coal and nuclear, have always been considered the most reliable forms of electricity generation. Renewable backers and many analysts dispute that contention and have told the agency as much. That has given natural gas plants a decided advantage over coal and nuclear, which can not as easily be taken off line and restarted.
An effort like that might run into problems on Capitol Hill, where lawmakers have raised objections to the study.
