Open Letter to the Secretary, U.S. Department of Energy23 Jul

Dear Secretary Chu,

The United States now imports 60 percent of its crude oil needs according to your Energy Information Administration. In about 11 years, that figure will rise to 100 percent based on known reservoir capacities and withdrawal rates. Given that there are now 137 million passenger vehicles (see Bureau of Transportation Statistics), what will power that many vehicles in 11 years, gasoline from imported crude oil? This constitutes energy security? What is your plan to address this troubling dilemma? You might check my blog for insight into this issue.
