Since the beginning of the Bush Administration, Vice President Dick Cheney had established a secret energy task force
to resolve our energy issues. What has played out in the last couple of years has been alarming. The energy policy this
task force developed entails billions of dollars paid out to the Oil and Utilities industries without any measures to
improve our energy crisis.
Many believe the policy was actually written by the industries themselves. Rights
groups have sued the government for the release of documents pertaining to the secret energy task force. The groups won
but the government is currently at the Supreme Court appealing the decision. This has not only left us with a bad energy policy,
but also a government that is going to lengths to prevent us from finding out the truth behind this policy.

and conservation -- it fails to
address the real problems.
