Diminishing fossil fuels and global warming are enough to make anyone think twice about flicking a light switch or turning up the thermostat. But there are a lot of popular myths masquerading as facts concerning energy use, and the more we learn about energy consumption, the more questions arise. Can solar energy provide the entire world’s electricity? Should we stop building nuclear power plants after Fukushima? Why don’t we use wave power? And how can we face the rising costs of heating and lighting our homes and businesses?
These questions and many more are answered in this accessible guide for anyone who is concerned about the most cost effective and environmentally responsible use of energy at all levels, from home baking to nuclear power plants. Energy Survival Guide serves as a reliable and systematic overview, offering well-balanced conclusions about the future of energy on our planet. With arguments backed up by informative figures and hard facts, this book deals with subjects as diverse as solar panels, the benefits of double glazed windows, the most efficient way to travel quickly, and the problems with electric cars.
