Summary

An earlier version of this paper was originally presented at The American Association of University Women, Michigan, State Division, USA. The paper deals with two main issues: In the first place that there is no single energy source that will solve the energy problem. The solution will come through what has been called “An Energy Family Approach.” Secondly, that government regulations, which were primarily written in the days when America was viewed as a country with no limits, must be relaxed.
