ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the U.S. energy resources and environment. According to Alan Nogee, the energy program director for the Union of Concerned Scientists, there is a continuing and potentially growing dependence in fossil fuel. He said that this puts states at risk not only because of the potential significant energy price spikes, but also because of the growing costs to minimize the effects of global warming.
