The Sustainable Energy Institute (www.s-e-i.org), in conjunction with the Georgetown Environmental Law Forum (ELF) and the Georgetown International Environmental Law Review (GIELR), held a forum on June 24th featuring these key energy advisors to President George W. Bush and Democratic Presidential Candidate John Kerry.

While comprehensive energy legislation remains stalled in Congress and is not likely to pass this year the issue of national energy policy will not fade away anytime soon. Concerns include U.S. dependence on foreign oil (particularly in a post- 9/11 world), a shortage of natural gas, high gasoline prices, urban smog, global warming, and a national electricity grid vulnerable to disruption. These issues underline the need for a more sustainable national energy policy.

Topics such as the price of gasoline have already figured prominently in the ongoing presidential campaign and will surely continue to do so. Clear differences exist between the favored energy policies of President Bush and Democratic candidate John Kerry. This SEI-sponsored comparison of the competing approaches of the two candidates may reveal much about the direction of our future energy policy.
