about

This important compendium deals with the primary world problems of global warming and the coming energy crisis. In alternating chapters, it lays out the nature of the two interrelated problems, and specifies the various economic considerations. Thus, it describes the coming shortfall of fossil fuel energy in detail and then presents the economic factors governing possible solutions.

Written by two world renowned academics — a physicist who writes about the nature of the problem, and an economist who discusses various scenarios and solutions, this unique must-have book highlights the problem from the point of view of a scientist and an economist.

Contents:

  • The Science of Energy and Global Warming
  • Energy Market Structures and Regulatory Structures
  • The Future
  • The Economics of Global Energy Security
  • Energy Myths and a Brief History of Energy
  • The Economics of Energy and Climate Change
  • Where Do We Go from Here?
  • The Future of Energy Based on Technological Innovation
  • Summary

Readership: Undergraduates, graduates, professionals, academics and the general public interested in energy studies, environmental economics, geophysics and public policy.
