Abstract:

The United States consumes almost one quarter of all of the available oil on earth to sustain its economy and world influence. The U.S. has become overly dependent on foreign oil and is one the top producers of greenhouse gases. U.S. leaders and departments are implementing various efforts to overcome this oil addiction, but are not coordinating these efforts so as to avoid unintended consequences. This essay proposes the development of a National Energy Security Strategy NESS, outlines six themes for implementing the strategy, and identifies the critical factors in each theme that need to be addressed in a synchronous manner.
