With Election Day in full swing, our Energy blogger, Claire, takes a look at “The Good, The Bad and the Energetic” today, in a guest post over on the excellent Oil Rules blog. Here’s an excerpt from Part 1:

“The…election and rising gas prices have raised the topic of energy to a higher level of importance for most Americans. Whatever it takes to make us examine what is required to produce the energy we crave in this country is good because it causes us to consider our responsibilities to the world today and to future generations.

Theodore Roosevelt, years ahead of his time, was an instrumental force in initiating wise conservation of our resources.

“In utilizing and conserving the natural resources of the Nation, the one characteristic more essential than any other is foresight… The conservation of our natural resources and their proper use constitute the fundamental problem which underlies almost every other problem of our national life.”

Address to the National Editorial Association,
Jamestown, Virginia, June 10, 1907.

The importance of the resources used for the production of energy show that Teddy Roosevelt was especially correct in predicting that conservation of resources would affect every other problem in our lives.”
