Energy Crisis-Then and Now
Readings in World Civilizations
Energy Crises, Then and Now: Based on “An Early Energy Crisis and Its Consequences” on pages 97–110, compare and contrast
the energy crisis in Britain with today’s energy crisis. In your opinion, what are the similarities and differences?
For this paper, you’re going to look at the reasons that caused the energy crisis in Britain and how the people reacted to the idea of
the proposed alternative fuel. In addition, you’ll discuss what economic events were brought on when Britain finally embraced the
change. Next, you’ll discuss the current fate of the United States. What has brought us to our current energy crisis? What are our
alternatives and what may our futures hold if and when we embrace these alternative energy sources?
