It like policies such as communism woud only be applicable in a perfect world, and unfortunately we are far from this goal, "Perfect" having many different meanings to different people.

  • Alternative Energy Supplies Must Be Implemented - 1,421 words
    The U.S. oil supply is rapidly diminishing. Alternative energy sources must be implemented because oil is a scarce and non-renewable resource.

The undiscovered U.S. OCS and gas resources combined with onshore reserves would amount to only 81.5 billion barrels of oil, enough to last for 5000 days (Coastal 75). So the oil crisis is not entirely bad news, the U.S. still has time to implement alternative energy sources such as nuclear energy, hydroelectric energy, solar power, wind power, and geothermal energy, as well as alternative fuels which may be used in existing power pla ...
