Abstract:

"America is just one crisis away from an energy emergency that will completely disrupt daily life, sharply increase energy prices, and perhaps even lead to a military intervention in world energy markets. Yet, as households and businesses suffer the impacts of our nation's worsening oil addiction, and as the world's atmosphere clogs with carbon pollution, there is just one bold, integrated, comprehensive energy program on the table. This is it." "In Leading by Example, Governor Richardson offers a positive, practical vision of the future that will eliminate our nation's crippling dependence on foreign oil, while rapidly cutting our climate-changing emissions. The program relies on new technologies and domestic energy sources, from renewables to efficiency and plug-in cars, that will grow the American economy while protecting our national security and restoring an oil-free foreign policy. Bill Richardson sees a thriving nation, invigorated by new opportunities, free from the constant threat of interrupted oil supplies, and finding innovative solutions for slowing and reversing global climate change. America will once again lead the world toward peace and prosperity. But to achieve these changes, America must move quickly." "Governor Richardson knows that the American people are ready for change, eager to play their part, and impatient for leadership that addresses the energy-environment-security nexus as a whole. In Leading by Example, he sets the standard for a fully developed, well considered energy plan - one that demands committed presidential leadership and deserves the support of the American people."--BOOK JACKET.
