Accelerating the Clean Energy Economy and Enhancing Energy Security

Energy independence, climate change and national security are interrelated global challenges. U.S. dependence on foreign sources of energy constitutes a serious threat?militarily, socially and economically. Predicted impacts of climate change include more frequent and intense storms and droughts, inundation of low-lying areas due to sea level rise, changing patterns of agriculture and an increase in "environmental refugees" fleeing worsening conditions.
