Summary
As we experience an increase in the price of petroleum, energy experts caution us about the coming of a time when easily accessible petroleum will begin to decline. The United States is confronted with the challenge of meeting current energy demands in the face of a declining and unstable energy supply. [This book] explores the most viable alternative sources of energy, discussing the technical, political, economic, and social feasibility of each technology in understandable terms. In addition, the book discusses the history of energy policy as well as current policy. Intended for courses in energy and public policy and for those interested in developing energy-efficient plans for sustainable communities, [the book] will help readers become active participants in making future energy choices for their communities. [It] includes an interactive model of alternative energy mixes and estimated prices.-Back cover
