ABSTRACT
The article reports on the Project Independence of U.S. President Richard Nixon that would make the U.S. self-sufficient in energy in 1980. It mentions the four-day Project Independence hearings led by Federal Energy Administrator John Sawhill in Manhattan, New York City where he acknowledged the importance of importing some oil. It predicts that the project could reduce dependence on foreign oil by 15% of total energy consumption in 1980 from the 18% energy consumption and by 10% to 13% in 1985. Moreover, it notes the efforts to the development of alternative sources of energy like nuclear power and shale oil.
