The Energy Non-Crisis

February 1982
National Review;2/19/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 3, p156
This article focuses on the progress the U.S. has made in the energy sector. Nuclear power has become entangled in a sea of regulations that do not enhance safety but that do cause extensive licensing delays and economic uncertainty. Energy Secretary James B. Edwards has set a goal to cut the ten to 14-year process by a third, and hopes to license 33 plants over the next two years. Another area of progress in this sector was when the present Administration lifted oil controls and plans to decontrol natural gas. More than 16,000 oil wells were successfully drilled in the first half of 1981 up 41.2 per cent from 1980.
