Are solar and wind powers the wave of the future? Will automakers standardize on an electric or hybrid car?
In Energy for Future Presidents Richard A. Muller, professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley, and a past winner of the MacArthur Fellowship, cuts through popular misconceptions about energy policy, examining the science behind conventional and clean energy technologies. He explores the pluses and minuses for both, including arguing for a worldwide switch from coal to natural gas and the further adoption of small nuclear reactors. This book is a readable choice for policymakers and the interested public.
