Impending World Energy Mess PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Impending World Energy Mess free pdf This book will help to educate readers about the realities of energy in general and oil in particular. The reader will be able to cut through the smokescreens that various self interests have, and are promulgating and understand that there are a number of credible studies that clearly demonstrate that world oil production is close to going into decline, which will create long-term world oil shortages. The huge economic impacts associated with impending oil shortages are brought into sober, balanced perspective and readers are given tools to minimise the impending negative impacts on their personal lives. Finally, the book provides a balanced discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of a number of electric power production technologies, and in particular, the inherent weaknesses in solar and renewable technologies.
