Description (excerpt):

The recommendations presented by the Energy Security Leadership Council (“Council”) in this  report are designed to achieve a fundamental necessity: safeguarding the physical and economic  security of the United States by significantly reducing our dependence on oil.

Today, this dependence constrains foreign policy, limits military options, and harms economic  growth and fiscal stability. Successfully addressing the challenge requires a balanced approach  that emphasizes both substantially decreasing oil consumption and expanding domestic energy  production.
