What is a great concern to me is that the current DOE Secretary, Steven Chu, promotes an energy policy that features energy conservation and energy efficiency as its first tenant. This is a perverse orientation for the person entrusted with leadership in the field of energy.

Many of the advantages Americans enjoy in their quality of life and standard of living come directly from access to low cost energy.

You can still manufacture products for worldwide sale if you can offset higher American labor costs with lower cost energy. If both your labor costs are higher and your energy is more expensive than your industrial competition you will not be able to sell your products to the world.

It is important to rethink focus on grabbing the "low hanging fruit" of energy conservation and efficiency and refocus on just trying to drive down the cost of energy while improving people’s access to cheap energy. There is no energy cheaper and less environmentally troublesome than nuclear energy.

Thanks for your article, hope you dream come true.

It's so nice to have you do all of the research for us. It makes our decision making so much easier!! Thanks.
