About the book:

How can we reconcile the world's growing demand for energy with the need to maintain a viable global ecosystem? Properly used, energy technologies can help realise material well-being across the planet, but a continuation of current trends will lead to a degraded environment. This collection of 11 articles from the September 1990 "Special Issue of Scientific American" grapples with the challenges we face in ensuring a safe, adequate energy supply in a world burdened by political and economic uncertainty. "Energy for Planet Earth" surveys current global energy needs and resources, and examines critical energy issues, their causes - and potential solutions by leading thinkers.
