"The United States has been unchallenged as the sole economic and military superpower in the world over the last 15 years. However, a near decade long volatility in energy markets has led some Americans to question whether the U.S. can preserve that standing in the world. Colonel Greg Wright argues that what is needed to retain our military and economic superpower advantage is a new, overarching, United States National Energy Security Strategy. This new National Energy Security Strategy should set the strict goal of making the United States energy independent by 2020; its essential components should include diversifying and increasing energy supplies, increasing conservation, decreasing greenhouse gas emissions and modernizing energy distribution and production systems."
