Abstract: "In the past several decades, the energy demands of the United States have increased dramatically. However, many of the raw materials necessary to meet this increased demand have come from foreign sources. Since the onset of the energy crisis in 1973, the U.S. has embarked upon an energy self-sufficiency program, ostensibly to protect the U.S. from vulnerability stemming from dependence upon foreign energy sources. One of the major components of this program is the increased exploitation of coal resource in the western U.S., especially in the Rocky Mountain-Northern Great Plains region. Many communities in this region are anticipating the development of large-scale coal mining (underground and strip), construction of plants to transform the coal into electricity or synthetic natural gas, and other related projects."
