THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, November 26, 2002
A group of prominent philanthropic foundations has created a $10 million commission of former energy-policy planners from both the Bush and Clinton administrations as well as representatives from industry and environmental groups to chart a long-range energy policy.
The National Commission on Energy Policy, which expects to present its report in two years, could pave the way for the federal government to re-examine energy policy and come up with a coherent strategy to balance energy use and environmental protection that will pass Congress.

Could go somewhere, could go nowhere. But the breadth of the commission members — from NRDC to the CEO of the nation’s largest group of nuclear-power plants — and the savvy of its funders — the Hewlett, Pew, MacArthur Foundation and Packard Foundations — suggests that something interesting might just happen.
