Energy coverage is on everyone's brain nowadays. The U.S. presidential crusade excited by strength independence and exploration ("Drill, child, drill!"), weather switch, substitute fuels, even nuclear strength. yet there's a major problem endemic to America's power demanding situations. Policymakers are likely to do exactly sufficient to meet political calls for yet no longer adequate to unravel the true difficulties, they usually wait too lengthy to behave. The ensuing regulations are overly reactive, enacted as soon as harm is already performed, and they're too frequently incomplete, incoherent, and ineffectual. Given the gravity of present fiscal, geopolitical, and environmental matters, this can be extra unacceptable than ever. this significant quantity information this challenge, making transparent the unlucky result of such short-sighted pondering, and it proposes measures to beat this counterproductive tendency.
All of the individuals to Acting in Time on strength Policy are affiliated with Harvard college and rank between America's pre-eminent power coverage analysts. They take on vital questions as they pertain to express parts of strength coverage: Why are those parts of power coverage so very important? How may "acting in time"i.e. now not ready until eventually politics calls for actionmake a distinction? What may still our coverage really be? we have to get power coverage correct this timeGallagher and her colleagues aid lead the way.
