Energy Reduction — Business and Industry Challenge 801014
A discussion of energy reduction considerations includes distinguishing between energy resources (potential supplies of energy) and energy stocks (available supplies of energy).
The potential of coal, nuclear fusion, and other forms of energy can result in abundant national energy stocks in the future. In many cases, however, today's needs cannot be deferred into tomorrow. With this in mind, it is evident that energy reduction practices are vital on both a long and short term basis to ensure the economic health of America and the world.
