Enron Needed a Level Playing Field

BY JASON M. THOMAS

While it is no perversion of language to describe Enron's collapse as a scandal, it is difficult, if not impossible, to identify any political dimension to the scandal or any course of action elected officials can take to ameliorate the situation. With a criminal investigation and numerous class-action civil suits underway, congressional investigations will do little more than earn headlines and provide a platform for political mudslinging and irresponsible charges.

American Energy Needs Private Markets, Not Haphazard Government Intervention

The war on terrorism clearly demonstrates the vulnerabilities of our energy markets, given the large amounts of energy we import from political hotspots. Following the September attacks there has been a great deal of pressure to end our dependence on foreign oil. But the war has also demonstrated that the market for energy is global and it would be impossible to extricate the United States from the world's energy markets. Since the attacks, energy markets have continued to operate, and Americans have seen some of the lowest prices at the pump in recent times. This does not mean that nothing can be done to improve energy markets in the United States. Any steps taken, however, must acknowledge the worldwide market for energy as well as the fact that private markets, not government intervention, will provide the basis for reliable energy now and in the future.

Autumn in ANWR

For most Americans, autumn means cooler air, shorter days, and warmer clothes. As a buffer between nature’s climatic extremes, it is a delicate balancing act, whose astonishing mosaic of changing leaves is a beautiful portent of the cold and dreariness that is to follow. It is a shame that some parts of America, like the tropical south and Mediterranean west, do not experience the emotive natural beauty of a distinct fall season.

BY Natalie M. Henry

While some of the energy policy players in Washington were loath to comment on a likely shift in the energy debate due to Tuesday's attacks, policy and market analysts stated clearly that the picture has changed and the impetus to reduce dependence on foreign oil is as strong as ever.

Letter to Congress Regarding the "Securing America’s Future Energy Act of 2001"

Dear Member of Congress: H.R. 4, the "Securing America’s Future Energy Act of 2001," will be coming to the House floor this week. On behalf of the nearly 300,000 members of Citizens for a Sound Economy’s (CSE) grassroots army, I urge you to support this legislation in its present form. This legislation is important if the United States is to have an energy policy that will produce affordable and reliable energy now and in the future, with minimum dependence on foreign oil cartels.

House Takes Up Energy Proposal

BY Joan Lowy Scripps

WASHINGTON -- With the environment shaping up to be a key issue in next year 's midterm election, lawmakers are under pressure to lean green when the House takes up President Bush's energy plan this week. The package of bills that will be brought to the floor by House GOP leaders emphasizes greater energy production and reliance on fossil fuels as opposed to the alternative energy sources and greater energy efficiency favored by environmentalists.

Trust Names Dirty-Air Power Group The Clean Air 'Villain Of The Month'

The non-profit Clean Air Trust today awarded its clean air "Villain of the Month" award to the National Electric Reliability Coordinating Council, a group of coal-burning power companies accused of evading the Clean Air Act. Members of the Council -- including the Southern Company, First Energy, and Duke Power -- are defendants in high-profile Justice Department anti-pollution lawsuits. (Another financial contributor to the Council, the Tennessee Valley Authority, is facing administrative action by the Environmental Protection Agency for the same sort of pollution violations.)

Energy Plan Results in Loud Cries From Both Sides During Meeting

BY Pam Easton

Advocates for wind power and other renewable energy sources bickered with supporters of President Bush's aggressive plans for more power plants and offshore drilling at a town hall meeting Monday night in the nation's energy capital. "The Bush plan is just a scam," protesters against the plan shouted as they marched in a circle in front of a 20-foot-tall inflatable White House replica with four smoke stacks emerging from its roof. They said renewable energy, such as wind power, should be considered before reverting to old methods, such as coal burning.

Capitol Comment 297 - Abundant Energy: The Building Block of Prosperity

Rising gas prices and rolling blackouts have made energy policy a hot issue nationwide. Some believe the solution is to procure new supplies to meet increasing demand. Others argue that conservation and efficiency will make more production unnecessary.
