Reference Entry
The author examines the issues surrounding the energy industries in the U.S. He stressed that providing tax incentives to the oil and natural gas industry will cause the world's finite energy resources to be used up faster, leading to an energy crisis not preventing one. Reducing energy demand is a better solution to the energy crisis. A national energy-conservation policy should have as a goal of a 50% reduction in energy consumption.
