Book Description:
Energy supplies and prices are major economic factors in the U.S., and energy markets are volatile and unpredictable. As an aid in policy making, this book presents a current and historical view of the supply and consumption of various forms of energy. With the downturn in the world economy and a consequent decline in consumption, prices collapsed, but the dependence continues as a potential problem. Other energy supplies discussed herein are: The Manhattan Project, the Apollo Program, and the Federal Technology R&D Programs; Nuclear Waste Disposal-Alternatives to Yucca Mountain; Biochar-An Examination of an Emerging Concept to Mitigate Climate Change; Alternative Fuels and Advanced Technology Vehicles; Carbon Tax and Greenhouse Gas Control; and the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP).
