Resumo:

Provides a collection of essays that offer varying viewpoints on the subject of oil, covering such topics as how to reduce the price of oil, the effect of oil in international relations, and the energy policies that America should pursue.

Those who do not know their opponent's arguments do not completely understand their own. The United States and many other countries are heavily dependent on oil for their energy needs. As economic growth increases around the globe, nations are demanding steadily increasing amounts of oil. However, while the world's demand for oil has grown rapidly, its ability to extract and refine oil has grown less quickly. When the oil supply in one part of the world is disrupted, it is becoming increasingly difficult to compensate by getting it from somewhere else. In addition to debating who or what is to blame for high oil prices, most people wonder what lies ahead as the world demands more and more oil. The authors of Opposing Viewpoints: Oil explore this question. - Introduction.
