Outlook for Energy in the United States

Emerson, John D.
October 1971
Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists;Oct1971, Vol. 27 Issue 8, p18
The article focuses on the condition of the energy market in the U.S. The two, main energy sources are oil and natural gas while the nuclear plant fuel source is still in its infancy stage. These resources are of no value unless one is able to extract and market it. However, it is expensive to extract them and the investment and benefit derived from these energy sources take several years to develop. People are consuming oil and natural gas faster than replacing them. It has reached to a point wherein the resources can no longer expand and the demand for these products continue to grow. Therefore, reliance on foreign resources for goods vital to economic survival will continue to escalate before one can recover and be self-sufficient.
