This book, prepared under the sponsorship of the Twentieth Century Fund, traces the forces which propelled the U.S.--and the world--to the energy brink in 1973-1974. The author outlines short-term and long-term responses to energy increasingly in shorter supply and higher in cost. The effect, he says, will force crucial decisions on the interlinked problems of the environment, inflation, politics, economic health and foreign affairs. Explored are the network of incentives and controls that must be initiated to ensure true energy conservation and all-out technological innovation in a democratic society. The author is confident the U.S. can meet this greatest test of our national intelligence and maturity.
