"They have had years to begin and no one has built a thing", stated one observer. "Not one light bulb has been lit as far as I can see."
Both major parties have been talking "Energy Independence" for 40 years now but has done little about it.
With the next Presidential election the liars will be out in force trying to please conservationists that this will finally be achieved, but all we have received is promises.
Five years after federal land managers opened up stretches of the Southwest to developers, vast tracts still sit idle, according to the report.
Instead of digging deeper into the ocean, why not set up all those windmills and solar energy plants?
Go to the other set-aside dessert land and build a few well-protected nuclear energy plants.
"I cannot for the life of me see what is stopping us", stated Conservationist, George Watchman. "There were already supposed to be solar plants going in the areas where they would be perfect. They get the sun the year around."
I think we all know the answer: All that Big Oil money going into the pockets of both political party's pockets!

There's a hole, called a pocket, in politician's pants, where all the money goes.
