Forecasting Alternative Regional Electric Energy Requirements and Environmental Impacts for Maryland, 1970–1990
Although recognition of the relationships and conflicts between energy, environment, and economic growth objectives has become international in scope, many of the most difficult issues must be resolved at the regional level. Debate over energy policy has revealed new sets of conflicts between national interests and local interests. Moreover, the selection of specific sites for power plants determines the major impact of environmental damage and also determines who will bear the costs and who will receive the benefits from increased energy supplies.
