Guides R. Rough Guide to the Energy Crisis
Rough Guides, 2010, 299 pages, ISBN: 1848364121
This book is a comprehensive guide to the workings of today's energy world, explaining the seductive nature of fossil fuels and the reasons why international climate change negotiations are proving so difficult. If you're interested in escaping the trap of fossil fuels and moving to a low carbon world, this is the guide for you. Realistically looking at the pitfalls, pressures and prospects for renewable energy, "The Rough Guide to the Energy Crisis" also shows that there is hope in new energy conservation techniques, made possible by smart grids and smart metering. You'll also discover energy security issues and future tensions that could occur, like the possibility of the lights going out, jeopardising public support for a world of cleaner energy.
