About "Energy Policy History"
Energy policies are a frequent topic in competitive debate, and this is not the first time this topic has been explored by the NCFCA team policy resolution. Energy policies also overlap onto numerous other types of policies, like transportation policies, agricultural policies, and environmental policies. These policies are not mutually exclusive. It is quite logical that policy-makers might, for example, change an energy policy for the express purpose of safeguarding the environment, thus making that policy both an energy and environmental policy at the same time.
In this chapter we will define the resolution, then trace some of the highlights of the background events of the topic throughout US history. In the upcoming second chapter, we will survey Status Quo issues and proposals for change and debate that are common in the literature today.

Coach Vance debated in National Forensic League debate while in high school from 1979-1982. In college, he judged at high school NFL tournaments in North Carolina. A homeschooling dad himself, he realized the growing potential and benefit of homeschool debate and switched over to coaching homeschoolers a couple years later. In 2001, he helped Chris Jeub with bringing The Blue Book to a more advanced level. He has been co-authoring Blue Book ever since.
