Does anyone remember why the Dept. of Energy was started?
President Carter started the Dept. of Energy 8/4/77 to find ways to relief our dependency of foreign oil. How have they done? What a waste of billions of dollars. Is it possible for the government to run any thing correctly?
President Jimmy Carter on August 4th 1977 signed into law The Department of Energy Organization Act, which created the Department of Energy. This was all done during the oil crisis back in the 1970's. I hope this helps.
The intent was to have an agency that would direct the nation's energy policy. We have the agency, but we have no policy. The Energy Department has little use, if any. However, the Energy Information Administration, which is part of the Energy Department, does an excellent job of keeping track of statistical data and evaluating current trends. The Department could be eliminated. The agency should be retained.
