As the United States responds to significant energy and climate challenges, swift progress is needed to move us away from a fossil fuel economy toward a carbohydrate economy based on sustainable renewable energy. However, in our haste to achieve greater energy independence, we should not simply focus on increased production. We must also focus on implementing conservation measures that reduce our insatiable demand for energy, and we must insure that the methods of renewable energy production are truly sustainable. Such a two-pronged approach will provide the best chance of achieving a healthier planet for future generations.
