    Many people are debating how to best meet energy needs in the United States. Some argue that the country must decrease its dependence on oil and invest in alternative sources of energy, such as wind and solar power. Others argue that changing to new power sources is unnecessary and expensive. They state that the United States should search for oil in Alaska, the Gulf Coast, and other currently unexplored areas within the country.

    Review two articles in the Opposing Viewpoints in Context database in the University Library. Read one for promoting renewable energy and one opposed to renewable energy.

    Write a 350- to 700-word essay in which you do the following:

  • Summarize the issue.
  • State your position on the issue.
  • Explain the perceptual blocks and habits that hinder your thinking when looking at the opposing view and defending your own view.
  • Describe what you can do to overcome those perceptual blocks and habits that are hindering your thinking and explain how your thought processes can be manipulated by perception.
  • Note. Your paper is not meant to be an opinion paper on renewable energy. Instead, it is meant to be about the habits that hinder your thinking and how you can overcome perceptual blocks.

    Format your essay consistent with Associate Level Writing Style Handbook guidelines.
