Burton Richter is a Nobel Prize–winning scientist who has served on many US and international review committees on climate change and energy issues. He provides a concise overview of the knowledge and uncertainties within climate change science, discusses current energy demand and supply patterns, and the energy options available to cut greenhouse gas emission. This book assesses the sensible, senseless and biased proposals for averting the potentially disastrous consequences of global warming, allowing readers to draw their own conclusions on switching to more-sustainable energy provision.
