As more and more of the public recognizes that energy policy is intimately tied with national security issues it’s probably wise to look at energy plans of Barack Obama’s National Security Advisor, former Supreme Allied Commander Europe, General James L. Jones.
Big Think recently interviewed Jones and asked him about the principles behind his energy policy thinking (The US needs to reduce dependence on oil), how we can solve the energy crisis (offshore oil drilling, clean coal, renewable energy), what the US government can do to help (incentives and price guarantees), and how we can best encourage innovation (free markets). Check out the entire video clip for Jones’ full responses.Here's more: background on General Jones and his work with the US Chamber of Commerce.
