Impacts of an Energy Resource PlanSandra Davis SCI/275Dear Great-great grandchildren,It is with a sad and heavy heart that I am leaving you this letter in this time capsule; it contains an explanation for the best possible option for a long-term energy sustainability plan. Currently the energy situation of our nation is not in good shape. The planets resources of non-renewable resources and fossil fuels are just about depleted. I know you are all wondering how we got to this situation and why nothing was done. Our nation had many challenges; one of the challenges was that for decades we did not have an energy policy in place. Solutions to energy crises is no easy task, with environment regulations tightening as well as otherfactors discouraging the growth of desperately needed energy infrastructure. The rising demand for oil has caused the price of oil to rocket and gas prices at the pumps to steadily get higher, I have found that even the price for food has risen as well. With the nation’s desire to have for more energy, and years of fast economic development, as well as the tightening restrictions on building new facilities, and other factors that lead to discouraging investment in conventional energy source, it is evident that there is a shortage in our electric power generation and transmission capacity. We have nearly depleted the planets resources of fossil fuels that are non-renewable. This includes nonrenewable resources such as propane, petroleum, nuclear power, coal and natural gas. The aforementioned resources do not rejuvenate overnight they take millions of years to produce. Therefore, there needs to be another form of renewable energy that is sustainable for your generation and those still to come. What we have given you is an earth where you will need to find resources to live on.
