ABSTRACT
The article reports on the position paper, released by the American Association of Engineering Societies, which states that the U.S. government has failed to provide a comprehensive policy that would encourage alternative energy sources. The position paper emphasizes the development of coal and synthetic liquids and the exploration for new sources of coal and gas. It also calls for incentives to encourage oil extraction from shale and tar sands and nuclear and solar sources.
