Release of PSA Energy and Climate Statement

On June 20, 2007, PSA hosted a luncheon on Capitol Hill to announce its statement on Energy Security and Climate Change. The statement, unveiled by PSA Advisory Board members former Senator Gary Hart and former National Security Advisor Robert (Bud) McFarlane, called for “dramatic bipartisan action” to address the United States’ dangerous dependency on oil.  Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) and Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD) joined PSA to support our call for sensible policies to reduce US dependence on foreign oil and combat the negative impact of climate change.


Signatories of the PSA statement included, among others, three former Senators, a former Congressman, a former Secretary of State, two former Ambassadors, and two former National Security Advisors.

In a nationwide press release on the morning of the event, PSA Advisory Board co-chairman and former Congressman Lee Hamilton (D-IN), commented, “America’s dependence on foreign oil is a vital national security concern. It’s time that Democrats and Republicans stand together to implement practical solutions that decrease our dependency on oil.”
