I began thinking about what President Bush said about our need for an energy policy, a comprehensive energy policy. Let’s review. We had an Oil Crisis in the late 1970’s. Jimmy Carter was in office. He started a conservation policy. He installed solar panels on the White House didn’t he? He increased emission standards.  Then America had 17 years of Republican presidents and 8 years of a Democratic pres. What policy did the Reagan and Bush, the greater, put forward? (Besides keep gas prices low and mine more and drill more.) Early August, both houses of Congress passed an energy bill that seems to me to be more of the same. Where was the comprehensive energy policy we were promised? Moneys to upgrade the electrical grid – where were they?
