Product Description

Fueling the Future From trips to the market to lighting entire cities, power is pivotal to the simplest of everyday necessities. Wars are fought over it, the planet is polluted by it, but now its price has become too high. Are we capable of shifting to cleaner, safer, more reliable sources of energy? "Fueling the Future" gathers the best and brightest minds in the field -- thinkers like Jeremy Rifkin, L.

5.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive and informative explanation of our energy options 29 Jan. 2011
By Samwich Samovich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Heintzman and Solomon do an excellent job of collecting some of the most readable and compelling essays on the future of energy. Each essay leads into the next; for example, one writer talks about the benefits of nuclear, and the second begins with why nuclear can't be sustained and goes on to make a case for hydro, etc etc. Very well done, the perfect read for someone curious about the energy crisis but lacking a science background to hunt down readable articles.

The only downside here is that the book is Canadian, meaning the writers focus on energy's impacts in Canada, which is slightly different from the effects in the US. Yes, the concepts are the same, but reading "a new research center has opened in Vancouver" once in a while jars me back to the reality that the US is sadly lacking in energy progress initiatives. Oh well, oh Canada. Two thumbs up!
