Abstract:

Modern society is built on energy. But reserves of conventional fuels such as oil and gas are running low, and their use is damaging human health and the environment. Can new, cleaner technologies satisfy growing demand for power in the future? In this fascinating guide, science writer Marek Walisiewicz maps out the economic, environmental, and political dimensions of the world's energy problems and examines how these issues are being addressed through technological innovation. Essential Science guides are edited by internationally renowned author, broadcaster, journalist, and research scientist John Gribbin. They mix lively illustrations and expert, jargon-free text to explain the important scientific topics of the day -- more clearly than ever before.
