This article describes the complex issues facing the energy needs and policies of the United States. The article notes that the role of the United States on the world stage and the health of the public and the environment depend on successfully solving the energy puzzle to harmonize economic development, sustainable use of the resources, and public safety. The article concludes that part of the difficulty of the debate may arise from an assumption that a single solution to the problem awaits and suggests that instead the only way forward is a policy of diversification and multiple strategies, encouraging conservation while developing all feasible energy sources.
