Nearly two years have passed since President Nixon first proposed that the U.S. become energy independent. -- This to be accomplished by the end of the 1970's. The proposal set in motion vast governmental efforts. As we all know, the "blueprint" for Project Independence was soon forthcoming. In this "blueprint" the proposed prospective date for attaining independence was moved forward to the mid-1980's. This perhaps was a subtle indication of the difficulty of moving toward energy independence however one might wish to define this concept.
