What can we do about the energy crisis?
Opinions abound when it comes to this essential question, but most discussions seem to generate more heat than light. Energy for Future Presidents remedies this by taking a scientific look at the different energy technologies and sources of today and tomorrow. We have a windfall of natural gas, but is the cost of “fracking” (the method used to extract it) to the environment too much? Is nuclear power dead? Are electric cars viable? Is “clean coal” an oxymoron? What are the prospects of wind power? Which biofuels show promise? And can smart grids really work? Answering these and many other questions, this is an invaluable book on one of the most critical challenges facing the nation today.
