Abstract:
Complexity, controversy, and timidity continue to rule considerations of energy policy for the United States. This combination of impediments has guaranteed the continuing absence of a rational and comprehensive policy reconciling energy, environmental, economic, and security issues.A pragmatic set of energy milestones for America to achieve by the end of the first quarter of the next century can be easily defined:� The last coal-fired power plant and the first environmentally benignfusion power plant would have been built.� The first commercial assembly plant for hydrogen-fueled automobileswould have reached full production along with the creation of thenecessary hydrogen fuel infrastructure throughout the country.� Clean, safe, and efficient transportation systems would have fullyreplaced the automobile in the core areas of the ten largest cities.� The first total conversion of a southwestern suburb to solar heating andcooling, solar electric house power, and solar electric cars would havebeen completed.
