Abstract:

"We are hooked on power. Our insatiable appetite for energy is at the root of many of the world's recent and ongoing wars, the fragile health of the global economy, and our increasingly polluted atmosphere. How can we move to cleaner, safer, and more reliable sources of power?" "In Fueling the Future, editors Andrew Heintzman and Evan Solomon bring together leading thinkers to apply their ingenuity to answering this difficult and urgent question. The contributors consider the most promising new energy technologies and what role the oil companies will play in the future. They envision the hydrogen economy and they discover who the current innovators are and how we can implement their ideas."--BOOK JACKET.
