In this article the author comments on Jeff Bingaman's article "An Energy Agenda for the New Congress" published in the journal's spring 2011 issue regarding the national energy policy initiatives in the U.S. The author supports Bingaman's suggestion that the government should support robust energy research and development (R&D) and the commercialization of new energy technologies. However, he opposes Bingaman's idea that Congressional leaders should be involved in devising new energy policies.
