Publisher's Summary

Since the Industrial Revolution, our civilization has depended on fossil fuels for energy - first it was coal; then petroleum. If business as usual continues, we are looking at a world where sea levels will be high enough to submerge many coastal cities and extreme weather events like 2012’s Hurricane Sandy are the new normal. In this audiobook, The Future of Energy: Earth, Wind, and Fire, we review the energy problem and analyze the options from the mundane to the far out. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Very disappointed

I only listened to the first hour before removing this book from my cell phone. It seems to have been written in 2009, so it is much out-of-date. It seems to be a disjointed series of articles from Scientific American scattered over several years. This is not up to Audible standards.
