A concise, authoritative, and confrontational challenge to the accepted "wisdoms" about the future of energy, complete with post-Obama victory notesIf the world could be more thoughtful about energy supply, we could all afford to be thoughtless about our personal use of energy.” At last, this cogent, widely researched analysis of the future of energy will enable readers to distinguish fact from fiction. Rather than disputing the nature and extent of climate change, this treatise analyzes humanity's response to it; examining why we have so far failed to deliver an intelligent response to the problem, investigating the intellectual origins of humankind’s pessimism in the face of global warming, and exploring the global, political, and economic factors constraining the development of solutions. It also puts forward the question of what framework societies should be adopting to create a future where there is energy for all, not just the affluent West. Hugely controversial and challenging, this guide to the issues surrounding global warming will create a new level of discussion on the energy issue.
