Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungRichardson, the governor of New Mexico, points out that since 1985, Americas consumption has climbed, fuel efficiency has stagnated, and our crippling dependence on foreign oil is as big as it has ever been. He now issues a call to action, for Congress, the energy industry, and the public, and calls for a new American revolution--an energy and climate revolution.

PortraitGovernor Bill Richardson (D-NM) has served as Secretary of Energy and Ambassador to the United Nations. Now, as the only candidate with executive and foreign policy experience, he presents an action program to sharply reduce America's oil dependence, build foreign policy on our principles instead of our addictions, and lead the world with energy and climate solutions that might just save millions of American jobs-and the planet.
