Representative Jay C. Hoffman has spent nearly two decades in the Illinois legislature and understands the policy challenges, as well as the practical realities, surrounding the development of a comprehensive energy plan. Hope from the Heartland demonstrates that the Midwest has the resources necessary to spark a green revolution and lead the nation in job creation, clean air, and energy security. Hoffman insists that the Midwest must develop clean energy technologies, rather than continuing to rely on rapidly dwindling foreign resources. Hope from the Heartland argues that by uniting behind a strategic plan to combat the challenges of climate change and to reduce our nation's dependence on foreign oil, the Midwest can create jobs and stimulate economic growth in a region that has been ravaged by unemployment and the decline of the manufacturing sector. In Hope from the Heartland, Hoffman proves that by using the region's abundant natural resources and geographic blessings, the Midwest can retool its industrial base to utilize new technology, jumpstart its struggling economy, and create good-paying jobs while securing the nation's energy future.
