The United States and International Energy Issues. Report to the Congress by the Comptroller General of the United States.
Comptroller General of the U.S., Washington, DC.
Presented are the major international energy policy issues facing all nations, and a basis for analyzing current and proposed United States' energy policies and initiatives. Eleven issues are examined, all of which relate to one central theme: Are U.S. international energy and related policies consistent with domestic energy goals, national security, economic performance, and quality-of-life objectives? Over 400 experts in 15 countries of North America, Europe, and the Far East reacted to these issues as presented by the staff of the U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO). This GAO summary and analysis is intended to demonstrate the importance of examining, understanding and accounting for the international implications of U.S. energy policies. Thus, Congress should be able to better define national energy priorities and formulate policies for dealing with them. (Author/WB)
