Industry Leader Calls for Independent ‘Energy & Environmental Protection’ Agency

The Houston Chronicle reports that “after retiring from a top job at one of the world’s biggest oil companies, John Hofmeister didn’t ride off into the sunset.”  

“The former president of Shell Oil Co. – the Houston-based U.S. arm of Royal Dutch Shell – instead has spent six years cultivating an audience on Capitol Hill and across the country for his rhetorical call to arms against what he calls a four-decade failure by the federal government to set in place a working U.S. energy plan.”  

“At the center of his proposal: An independent agency that would manage energy and environmental protection just as the Federal Reserve Bank manages the money supply.”
