Description

First published in 1980, the first volume of Energy Development in the Southwest analyses four potential energy development scenarios for the Four Corner states (i.e., Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming) and for the Upper Colorado River Basin, based on alternative national energy scenarios and attempts to assess some of the economic, demographic, and environmental impacts of each development scenario. The energy development scenarios considered in this book involve coal development and use, oil share production, and uranium mining and milling. This title will be of particular interest to students of Environmental Science.show more
