About this title

Synopsis:

"Our civilization's ever-increasing hunger for energy-and its fixation on fossil fuels to provide that energy-is in the process of imploding on itself as our population grows and its demographics change. Yet we live in a world of tough realities, where an elegant solution simply does not exist." 2GreenEnergy founder Craig Shields provides a broad survey of the subject, presenting 25 interviews with the widest possible variety of subject matter specialists-each chosen to provide the reader with an accessible and fair-minded treatment of a particular issue. The technology, the economics, and the politics of renewables form a fantastically complicated calculus that needs to be thoroughly understood if we are to have relevant, informed discussions on this subject-the most important challenge in the history of mankind-the migration to clean and sustainable energy sources.

From the Author:

My team and I at
2GreenEnergy.com have been hard at work, trying to uncover the truth about the difficulties we face in the migration to renewable energy. The US has plenty of money to fight wars and bail out the biggest corporations that make the biggest, most egregious business mistakes - yet how is it that we're so poor as to lag behind the rest of the world in investing in clean, sustainable ways to generate and use energy? Here's the truth: 2GreenEnergy.com/Truth, and here's a blog in which we ask you to participate and present your ideas on the subject: 2GreenEnergy.com/Blog.
