Letter to President Cicerone (NAS) Supporting a Comprehensive and Objective Analysis of Energy Technologies

August 5, 2008


Dr. Ralph J. Cicerone
National Academy of Sciences
2101 Constitution Avenue
Washington, DC 20418

Dear Dr. Cicerone:

We are writing to express our support for the National Research Council’s initiative to develop a comprehensive and objective analysis of the nation’s energy technology options. The Committee on Science and Technology is committed to promoting research and development for a prosperous and sustainable energy future. Our nation’s capacity for innovation coupled with our utilization of energy resources has afforded us the quality of life we enjoy today. However, rapidly increasing global energy demand now presents a serious threat to our geopolitical, economic, and environmental health, and poses perhaps the greatest technological and public policy challenge of our time. In light of this, the Academies’ efforts to provide a technical baseline for addressing these concerns could not be more relevant or timely.
