Oil Dependency

Posted on

Having recently completed the process of perusing “A Declaration of Energy Independence: How Freedom from Foreign Oil Can Improve National Security, Our Economy and the Environment,” by Jay Hakes, my brain is turning with the majority of the issues this raises. Hakes was the leader of the Energy Information Administration at the U.S. Branch of Energy during the Clinton organization, so he knows a considerable lot about the point.

He makes an entirely decent case that not exclusively will shaking the U.S. dependence on remote oil help in these manners, yet that it is conceivable. He calls attention to that after measures put vigorously after the oil deficiencies in the 1970’s, the U. S. all things considered cut its dependence on outside oil by half…for a brief time. This was cultivated through a blend of government resolve to settle the emergency and the public’s ability to receive some basic preservation measures. Individuals really drove less and at more slow speeds; they turned down their indoor regulators in the winter and up in the mid year; they started to introduce sun powered water radiators.
