The near-meltdown ofFukushima, the upheavals in the Middle East, the BP oil rig explosion, and thelooming reality of global warming have reminded the president and all U.S.citizens that nothing has more impact on our lives than the supply of anddemand for energy. Its procurement dominates our economy and foreign policymore than any other factor. But the "energy question" is more confusing,contentious, and complicated than ever before. We need to know if nuclear powerwill ever really be safe. We need to know if solar and wind power will everreally be viable. And we desperately need to know if the natural gas depositsin Pennsylvania are a windfall of historic proportions or a false hope thatwill create more problems than solutions. Richard A. Muller provides all theanswers in this must-read guide to our energy priorities now and in the comingyears.
