Is there an energy shortage in the United States?

    No. Coal and natural gas, the primary means by which we generate electricity, are both plentiful right now. Power outages are generally due to transmission problems, not shortages. We may be nearing the end of our oil supply, though we still have many decades before we have to worry about that seriously. However, we do have a definite shortage of clean energy in this country (and indeed, the whole world). To curb global warming, we will need to switch to renewable energies like solar, wind, and geothermal. This transition is very much in its infancy right now.
