Before the Lights Go Out: Conquering the Energy Crisis Before It Conquers Us
Freaking out about high gas and energy prices? Or is it the foreign policy of oil? How about the changing climate? Or maybe the public safety threats associated with losing 20 quadrillion BTU worth of fossil fuels in the next two decades? This book offers solutions for the world's energy problem. Change is inevitable, says Maggie Koerth-Baker, science editor for the hugely popular BoingBoing blog. She argues that economics and social incentives both got us into this mess and will get us out of it. We don't need to go back to 1900, Koerth-Baker says. We need to get energy from new places and do more with less of it.
