A Declaration of Energy Independence

| September / October 2003

The Energy Future Coalition, supported by executives from organizations as diverse as Shell Oil and the Sierra Club, recently called for a 'one-third reduction in U.S. [energy] consumption and a one-third reduction in carbon dioxide emissions over the next 25 years,' reports the environmental Webzine Grist. Meanwhile, the labor-supported Apollo Alliance has requested 'a 10-year, $300 billion federal investment in clean-energy technologies and green building' which, they argue, will create at least a million new jobs. Both initiatives will not only help the environment and the economy, but will also limit our reliance on foreign sources of fuel.
