Subject: Would ENR Ctee Member Lee support a truly non-partisan energy policy?

Dear Senator Lee,

In desperation to get your attention to an imminent threat to the U.S. economy and social stability, I have been pondering
what might appeal to every Senator and every Representative on truly non-partisan grounds.

Let’s get to the bottom line: W.E.C.A.R.E. is a catchy acronym. It expresses what I hope represents your values.

W.E.C.A.R.E. stands for World Energy Crisis Aversion & Readiness Endgame. Read that slowly and carefully.

I so firmly believe that an energy policy that transcends parochial and vested interests is workable. It’s about time!

Given the volatile commodity markets for oil and gas, we are nowhere near energy independence.

Given the financial fragility of the oil and gas drilling, production, refining and transportation, a crisis is imminent.

Given the geopolitical tensions around the world, any surprise flutter of a butterfly wing could bring on disruption.

Are you prepared for the eventuality that declining oil prices will put even the mightiest oil company into bankruptcy?

Are you prepared for the eventuality that spiking oil prices will fatally impact our supply chains and our economy?

Are you prepared for the resulting decline in the financial and equity markets when traders panic and bale out?

Are you prepared for the complete erosion of your personal wealth—every American’s life savings and pension?

Does any energy policy to-date give any consideration to oil and gas other than continuation in perpetuity?

When any disruption of the supply of oil and gas for reasons you have not addressed happens, you will be culpable!

You have a personal responsibility to demand that Senate and ENR Leadership openly investigate downside risks.

You have a constitutional obligation to act for Americans’ wellbeing—so-called Public Interest and National Interest.

What have you done recently to fulfill your responsibility and obligation, exhibiting truly non-partisan behavior?

It is time! Please consider W.E.C.A.R.E. — World Energy Crisis Aversion & Readiness Endgame.

Start by calling oil and gas company CEOs and members of Boards of Directors to testify how they will act in the Public
and National Interest in the face of debt default, insolvency and bankruptcy which requires that they exercise fiduciary
duty. I believe these two requirements are opposing concepts and that their conflict will undermine American Society
unless dealt with in transparent, frank and honest dialogue well in advance of the looming imminent crises.

Sincerely yours,
Doug Grandt
