Energy, Natural Resources, and the Environment in the Eighties.
President's Commission for a National Agenda for the Eighties, Washington, DC.
Presented are the findings of a national panel which investigated the present situation and future policy options regarding energy and the environment. Three sections comprise the report: (1) a chapter dealing with energy supply, consumption, pricing and policy; (2) an analysis of environmental issues such as land use, toxic substances, cost-benefit analysis, and government regulation; and (3) a set of criteria against which future directions of society may be judged. Emphasized is the importance of achieving far higher levels of energy efficiency--better ways of using the raw energy resources now consumed. Also stressed is the need to shape a "conserver society" that values conservation, relies primarily upon renewable resources, and recycles much of its material. (Author/WB)
