Why We Engage Energy Policy AJC Goes Green Resources

AJC has long believed that the development of a comprehensive U.S. energy program is essential to the economic and social well-being of our country, our national security and the continuance of our broad role in world affairs.

The United States must set as a primary national goal a comprehensive energy policy aimed at a substantial reduction in U.S. dependence on imported oil, with the potential for energy flexibility and near independence in the longer term. Such a policy should encompass:

  • vast increases in vehicle fuel efficiency
  • a reduction in wasteful energy consumption
  • increases in domestic supplies with appropriate attention to environmental safeguards
  • further diversification of foreign oil sources
  • development and commercialization of alternative sources of energy.
