U.S.: Energy Security Requires Energy Diversity

Posted April 8, 2014 at 11:13am

UPI reports that “reducing the dependence on oil and increasing energy security involves more than just increasing production, U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said.”  

“The U.S. Energy Information Administration said oil production by 2020 should pass the 9 million barrel per day mark and shale production should account for more than 80 percent of the increase from U.S. reserves.”  

“U.S. policymakers said increased production would help wean the U.S. economy off foreign imports.”  

“Moniz in a 32-page report outlining the department’s strategic plan said the U.S. economy needs a break from oil.”
