The article discusses the risks of increased Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards and drilling in Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in Alaska as suggested in the author's proposed bill in the U.S. The author acknowledges the importance of wind energy and supports a renewal of the Wind Energy Tax Credit, but suggests the need to recognize the limitations of the former. He offers suggestion on how the transmission capacity of wind energy can be increased and cites other technological advances that should be developed which include clean coal, ocean thermal energy and electric cars.
