President Bush Requests $25 Billion for U.S. Department of Energy’s FY 2009 Budget
Only $1.25 billion is for the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Let’s put this in context. We are spending approximately $150 billion/year in Iraq and we are spending over $700 billion/year for imported oil. The 2009 U.S. budget is over $3 trillion and President Bush is recommending $1.25 billion for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. This is less than 1% of what we should be spending on energy efficiency and renewable energy!
The energy war is a much greater threat to the U.S. today than the war in Iraq. It is killing our economy.
If President Bush and this Congress were in power from 1940 – 1945, the U.S. would now be speaking German or Japanese. There hasn’t been a sighting of leadership in Washington in years, many years!
