Secretary of Energy Samuel Bodman testified in Congress today on energy security issues. Read the full text here.
He summed it up by saying that DOE is
advancing the effort to curb America’s dependence on fossil fuels and reduce GHG emissions. These efforts are expected to eventually help mitigate the effects high energy prices have on the American taxpayer. There is no silver bullet that will immediately solve our energy challenges, or drastically reduce costs at the gas pump. But we need to work together and answer the President’s call to increase domestic exploration, expand our nuclear infrastructure as well as solve our long-term nuclear waste storage challenge.
Along the way he made brief mention of research support in renewable energy and coal-plant carbon sequestration. No mention of the freeze on renewable power plant permits on federal land.>>
