This title provides a timely and intelligent look at how we can plan for a future without a dependence on oil and other fossil fuels. We have spent the last 200 years building a civilization on coal, and the last century building it bigger still on oil. Fossil fuels have been the wellspring of our complex, glorious modern world, but they are about to run out. And in order to survive, we must plan for a future without reliance on oil. But successful planning depends on a realistic assessment of our current situation, a deeper appreciation of limitations placed on our civilization and its growth by the natural world and its resources, and the development of renewable and sustainable energy sources. Timely and sobering, yet hopeful, this volume offers a realistic vision of the near future and the many important lessons about the limitations of our resources we desperately need to learn.

Reviews

"Sobering yet compelling... a lucid and inspiring plan for international energy-conserving cooperation." - Booklist "An important yet darkly blunt description of the energy situation; readers interested in the energy crisis and the green movement will enjoy it." - Library Journal "Gives lay readers a big-picture overview of the oil situation... Its main points are well-taken and are in need of wide dissemination among the population." - Energy Bulletin "Thought-provoking solutions for a global community. A must read, especially for those involved in energy policy or other energy-related issues.... Highly recommended." - Choice Current Reviews for Academic Libraries
