Summary
Energy shortages in the West have rekindled the debate about whether the United States should turn to alternatives to fossil fuels. Authors argue the merits of nuclear power, wind energy, and electric cars in the following chapters: Are Alternatives Energy Sources Necessary? Is Nuclear Power a Viable Energy Alternative? What Alternative Energy Sources Should Be Pursued? Should Alternatives to Gasoline-Powered Vehicles Be Pursued?
