Markley, Rick
February 2007
Rock Products;Feb2007, Vol. 110 Issue 2, p2
The author reflects on the call from U.S. President George W. Bush in his State of the Union address for reducing the dependence of the nation on foreign petroleum. He argues that the gyst of the message from Bush is tilted more to increasing supply rather than reducing demand. The author applauds Bush's stated goals but remains unconvinced that his administration has either the desire or ability to bring them to fruition.
