Every President since Nixon said we need to be independent of foreign oil imports. All have failed to put in a plan to make it happen. The US House passed a Clean Energy Bill in July 2009 and one of the 4 elements of the Bill was to Transition to a Clean Energy Economy. The US Senate failed to enact a plan for a Clean Energy Economy. Many nations in the world have a plan to phase out fossil fuels and phase in the renewable energy options. Without a plan, we are left to develop an emergency plan when it is too late. We have no Energy Policy other than one that has existed for the last 100 years. Drill, mine, burn and dispose of the toxic waste is the only policy we have. We need to plan for our future using the clean renewable, sustainable energy options that are viable and economical.
