Gasoline prices are high and rapidly climbing. Oil and natural gas reserves are dwindling, while demand is poised to skyrocket as developing nations around the world lead their citizens into the modern energy economy. Meanwhile, the grave threat of catastrophic climate change looms ever larger, and energy worries are at an all-time high.
In this book, the author cuts through the hype, alarmism and confusion to give a straightforward, informed account of where we are now, and a map of where we're going.
