Energy in an Age of Limited Availability and Delimited Applicability focuses on the energy crisis that threatens national safety, economy, and way of living. This book emphasizes that the energy problem is the result of a long chain of misguided policies leading to wasteful use of oil and gas and reliance on cheap foreign oil rather than developing domestic supplies. The topics discussed include the world-wide pervasiveness of the energy problem; energy self-sufficiency versus energy independence; social-economic foundation of growth in energy use; and ingredients of a balanced and rational energy economy. The sources of energy; launching and implementing project independence; keystone in the arch of project independence; and research and its place in project independence are also deliberated.
