A Progressive Energy Platform

A Progressive Energy Platform (PDF; 191 KB)
Source: Progressive Policy Institute

America’s national security, economic vitality, and environmental health demand that the country neither accept today’s energy policy status quo, nor passively wait for some distant wholesale shift to a clean energy future. Although the United States is gradually moving away from a 50-year-plus policy of propping up despotic regimes in the Middle East to protect oil supplies, it has yet to make a credible effort to actually break its oil dependence, diversify its energy portfolio, or modernize its
electricity sector.

President Bush and Republicans in Congress seem content with this state of drift, as evidenced by their enthusiastic embrace of the decidedly conventional 2005 energy bill. It therefore falls to progressives to champion an energy plan that will turn America in a new direction and make the future happen now.
