HCN’s call for a national energy policy…and candidates’ attention

I’m not a big reader of magazines or periodicals but one I always look forward to receiving is High Country News, especially when it comes to the environment, politics and the West, one of my favorite reads is High Country News…Check that, I’d say that it is one of my favorite periodicals period.
Decrying our lack of a national energy policy, HCN senior editor Ray Ring in a Jan. 21 feature article resurrects the words of then Pres. Jimmy Carter thirty years ago when the U.S. was facing the first oil and energy crisis. He also offers presidential candidates some advice: pay more attention to the West and its specific needs and issues, particularly in light of growing voting populations and the need to balance social, economic, security, energy and environmental needs.

An independent journalist, researcher and writer, my work roams across the nexus where ecology, technology, political economy and sociology intersect and overlap. The lifelong quest for knowledge of the world and self -- not to mention gainful employment -- has led me near and far afield, from Europe, across the Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa and back home to the Americas.
