The study examines the development of six energy resources (coal, geothermal, natural gas, oil, oil shale, and uranium) in eight western states (Arizona, Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming) during the period from the present to the year 2000. Nine major problem and issue categories are analyzed: water quality, water availability, air quality, land use and reclamation housing, growth management, capital availability, transportation, and energy facility siting. The final chapter discusses policy responses available to policy makers at various levels of government, in Indian Trades, and in the private sector.
