This collection of data and graphics were prepared in response to a request from the White House Energy Policy and Planning Staff. The focus of this document is on those environmental issues which will, in the near and midterm future, prove important to the rapid development of domestic energy resources. This report emphasizes coal because of its prominence as an energy resource during this period. Other energy sources such as nuclear power, oil shale, oil, and gas are discussed to a lesser degree. Long term resources such as solar and geothermal resources are considered briefly, but references for further reading on these subjects are provided. The intent of the document is to communicate concepts rather than technical detail, thus data are approximate. (Author/RE)
