Sec. 5901. Congressional statement of findings
The Congress hereby finds that -
(a) The Nation is suffering from a shortage of
environmentally acceptable forms of energy...
(c) The urgency of the Nation's energy challenge will
require commitments similar to those undertaken in the
Manhattan and Apollo projects; it will require that the
Nation undertake a research, development, and
demonstration program in nonnuclear energy
technologies with a total Federal investment which may
reach or exceed $20,000,000,000 over the next decade.
