Energy Beyond Oil
Troubador Publishing Ltd, 2005 - 198 lappuses
In order that you can share the argument, this book explores the issues in detail. The data. The trends. The projections. The possible outcomes. Hopefully, at the end of this process, you will be able to understand what it is we are facing, and perhaps find your own resolution to the potential difficulties we will all face over the years.
