As the rate of energy use far outstrips the estimate of what resources may be available, other fuels are needed to supplement dwindling supplies of oil and gas. Three such alternatives are coal, oil shale, and uranium, all of which exist in potential abundance in Colorado. However, large-scale production of these resources will result in complex interactions with the state's social and physical environment, and the technologies and issues involved must be fully identified and understood before full-scale development takes place. This book provides current information on coal, oil shale, and uranium resources in the state, as well as on the potential impact of the technology associated with their development. Initially prepared as three separate volumes intended to inform policymakers in the legislative and executive branches of state government, this single volume has been expanded and brought up to date for a broader audience.
