Item description for New Approaches on Energy and the Environment: Policy Advice for the President (Resources for the Future) by Richard D. Morgenstern...

Written by an internationally renowned team of economists and policy analysts at Resources for the Future, a Washington D.C. think-tank with a tradition for independent, objective research, this collection of twenty-five "memos to the President" offers constructive policy options for the elected administration on critical challenges related to energy, the environment, and natural resources.

Each contributor to New Approaches on Energy and the Environment was asked to address the question: "Based on your own research and knowledge, what policy recommendation would you like to make to the next U.S. president?" Writing in advance of the 2004 election so as to keep their essays free of partisan interpretations, the authors were asked not to confine their suggestions to what the prevailing wisdom says is politically possible. They also took pains to make their ideas accessible to a busy president as well as a wide range of readers interested in a concise and authoritative overview of the nation's energy and environmental policy choices. The results are provocative, sometimes controversial, but highly readable essays on topics including climate change, oil dependency, electricity regulation, brownfields revitalization, forest service administration, air and water quality, and environmental health issues such as food safety and the growing threat of antibiotic resistance. The president confronts competing perspectives about the priorities and approaches that should apply to energy and the environmental policy: Americans want cleaner air and water and healthy and attractive surroundings, but they also want inexpensive fuel, comfortable cars and houses, and continued economic growth. New Approaches on Energy and the Environment provides thought-provoking, common-sense contributions to debates about important energy and environmental issues confronting the U.S. today.
