Forging a consensus from a multitude of conflicting interests and policies is proving a monumental task. In the face of anxious voices proclaiming the imminence, if not the presence, of a national energy crisis, President Nixon has announced a series of actions and proposals, which, he hopes, will precipitate a concerted national commitment to avert what he believes threatens to be a "genuine energy crisis."
