This volume explores the issues of energy use, policy, and possible new sources. Chapters address the current status of the world's energy use and the role of governments in addressing energy concerns; the impact of voluntary conservation and the transition to energy efficient technology; the current use of alternative energy sources; and the future of energy from where we stand.
"This series has added new books ever since it began in 2006. It presents contemporary topics such as AIDS, organic foods, and online social networking in a format that encourages research and further study. Complex issues are well-researched, well-written, and supported by photographs and charts as necessary."
