The fifth plenary meeting of the Secretary of Energy Advisory Board (SEAB) was held in Washington on July 10. Opening comments by Admiral James Watkins, Secretary of the Department of Energy, provided insights into his vision of the agency's future direction.
These are exciting times, Watkins said, declaring that the “evil empire has disappeared.” He hailed Boris Yeltsin's recent declaration to Congress that communism is dead. Watkins spoke of the opportunities of the “new world order,” but also said that DOE is facing a management challenge of great proportions.
