Abstract or Summary
  • The term "sustainable development" describes certain proposals designed to provide the present generation with such needs as food, shelter, and energy while sustaining the environment or stock of natural resources for future generations. The purpose of this paper was to analyze the relationship between sustainable development and current U.S. petroleum policy. Information was gathered from newspapers, journals, government publications, and other relevant literature. The paper provided an overview of sustainable development, a history of u.s. petroleum policy, and an analysis of the congruence of sustainable development and current u.s. petroleum policy. The analysis showed that U.S. petroleum policy does not reflect the tenets of sustainable development. The paper examined three factors, other than the structure of America's government and decision-making process, that might explain the discrepancy between sustainable development and U.S. petroleum policy. These factors were widespread political inaction among Americans, negative interpretations of sustainable development, and a similarity between the intentions underlying both sustainable development and the problems it seeks to solve. The paper closed with some general speculations about sustainable development.
