About this book

Nearly everything made or built, and nearly all the energy used, comes out of the Earth. Modern society is increasingly dependent on mineral and fossil energy sources. They are non-renewable, they differ in their availability, in the cost of production, and in their geographical distribution. Growing demand have begun to restrict the availability of these resources. This volume discusses some of these issues.
