Bill Richardson Authors New Book on Environmental/Energy Issues
If This Be Treason has just posted the details of a new book authored by Governor Bill Richardson which is to be released in November 2007. The book, entitled Leading By Example: How We Can Inspire an Energy and Security Revolution will detail Governor Richardson's plan to end American dependence on foreign oil and to adopt sensible energy policies.
Richardson decided to write the book when he realized that the various solutions on the table from politicians, diplomats, pundits, or industry leaders were not bold enough or comprehensive enough to truly help American reach its goals in time. In LEADING BY EXAMPLE, Richardson argues that we have known about our country’s energy problems for 35 years, but since 1985 our consumption has climbed, fuel efficiency has stagnated, and our crippling dependence on foreign oil is as big as it has ever been. So Richardson is issuing a call to action, for Congress, the energy industry, and the public. He is calling for a new American revolution - an energy and climate revolution.
