This article focuses on the priority of U.S. President Jimmy Carter's government to develop a national energy policy for the country. According to the President, many Americans do not believed that they really have an energy problem. It is stated that by April 1977, they would have completed the planning for their energy program and would immediately then ask the Congress for its help in enacting responsible legislation. The program will emphasize conservation. It is further reported that by April, a U.S. Court of Appeals stopped work on a 90 per cent finished TVA dam near Knoxville, Tennessee, because it would endanger the habitat of a three-inch-long minnow on the endangered species list.
