The United States is still searching for a nationally unifying energy policy regime. Whether this can be contemplated at a national federal level is yet to be seen. The Obama administration ushered in an attempt at liberating the United States' dependence on foreign energy resources. But Obama inherited responsibilities from an administration that was in, waist-deep, in giving the fossil energy industry the upper hand at the preference of the renewable energy industry. This favoritism on fossil fuel sources, from the previous administration, also drove the country into dependence on foreign fossil resources. Can the present administration untangle the country from this wrangle? In the competition between the fossil energy sources and renewables, how long can we wait before renewables gain the competing edge? This work dives head long into this energy debate.
