ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's comments on a report by Cambridge Energy Research Associates Inc., which concludes that, unlike in the 1970s, current concerns of the U.S. with energy would not fade when oil prices go down. The report, as stated, itself raises enough doubts. The report has been criticized as its conclusion is based on the assumption that government will consider clean energy an essential issue to push, for both environmental and political reasons.
