eBook - 2007
Rate this:
We are facing an international energy crisis of unprecedented proportion. The foreign policy of the United States is uncomfortably associated with our dependency on foreign oil. Carbon-based fuels are creating a greenhouse effect that is wreaking havoc around the world. Nuclear power is not only dangerous, but it is also not an economically feasible solution. The earth needs an answer and it needs one fast. The answer for the energy crisis is in renewable resources. Solar and wind power, ethanol and other biofuels, geothermal energy, hydrogen, and other renewable resources will preserve life as we know it. The United States-indeed, every country in the world-needs to be able to produce, use, and store its own energy. There is no time to delay. The technology exists today to make substantial changes in our energy production and use. Long-time energy insider S. David Freeman challenges the United States and the world to create a high-energy global civilization where each nation has its own homegrown, carbon-free renewable source of energy. It is not a hope or a dream. Freeman explains how the combined action and voice of ordinary people can make a difference and can save the world from destruction. - Publisher.
