After decades of decline, crude oil production is rising again. Technologies such as hydraulic fracturing in places such as North Dakota are getting <a href="http://www.npr.org/series/268211390/the-great-plains-oil-rush">a lot of attention</a>. But the Gulf of Mexico still accounts for more than one-fifth of domestic oil production.<p>The Gulf can get overlooked because much of the work happens where few people can see it — dozens of miles from shore and deep underwater.

A key element is rules the Environmental Protection Agency <a href="http://www.npr.org/2014/06/02/318266794/epa-lays-out-centerpiece-to-obamas-climate-change-policy">proposed in June</a>. They would cut greenhouse gas emissions — chiefly carbon dioxide — from existing power plants. The national goal is 30 percent by 2030, based on 2005 levels.<p>Coal has much to lose under the rules.

But most leases are for 20 years, and that can present problems if someone wants to sell the house before the lease is completed.<p>Peter Auditore of El Granada, Calif., was happy with the leased solar panels he installed a few years back. When he decided to sell, he found a buyer who also appreciated the environmental benefits of solar panels.
