Beschreibung:

Dr. Daniel B. Botkin objectively assesses the true prospects, limitations, costs, risks, dangers, and tradeoffs associated with every leading and emerging source of energy, including oil, natural gas, coal, hydroelectric, nuclear, wind, solar, ocean power, and biofuels. Next, Botkin addresses the energy distribution system, outlining how it currently works, identifying its inefficiencies, and reviewing options for improving it.   Finally, Botkin turns to solutions, offering a realistic, scientifically and economically viable path to a sustainable, energy-independent future: one that can improve the quality of life for Americans and for people around the world.   The Future of Fossil Fuels What can we realistically expect from oil, gas, and coal?   Will Alternative Energy Sources Really Matter? Running the numbers on solar, wind, biofuels, and other renewables   Must We All Wear Sweaters and Live in Caves? The right role for efficiency--and why energy minimalism isn't the solution   Where We Can Start--and What Will Happen if We Don't No magic bullet, but there are sensible, realistic solutions
