To the Editor:
“Lawmakers Re-energized on Energy” (news article, July 9) reveals how the lack of a strategic energy policy has hurt America.
Energy policy should be developed and guided by apolitical science and technology expertise, not the politically motivated, knee-jerk reactions we are witnessing in Congress.
The next president needs to engage the extraordinary expertise in our national laboratories, universities and research centers to develop the best long-term, permanent solutions to the energy problems facing America and the world.
Energy policy today will have an impact on America for decades. It is time to put politics aside and start solving the problems facing us and our children.
