Energy independence quote of the day

Posted by Daniel Hall on December 13, 2007

The first thing we had to do was re-define “energy independence.” The second thing we had to do was re-define “ten years.”

–Bill Hogan, part of the Energy Indepenence Task Force charged with making good on President Richard Nixon’s promise to make the United States energy-independent within ten years.
