Energy beyond oil

Paul Mobbs
"Energy Beyond oil examines the issue of energy use and supply, how much energy we consume today, how long our current reserves of energy might last, and what this will mean for the amount of energy our society will have in future. It looks at how much energy different sources (fossil, nuclear, renewable fuels) might contribute, and how society may have to change if we rely upon these alternative sources of energy... if shortages, price or the environmental effects such as climate change render our current reliance on fossil fuels unsustainable."--BOOK JACKET
