    The Moral Case for fossil fuels

    It is very good! I hope some of our political leaders read it, and I hope all of our future leaders will have read it.

    An unpopular truth

    Notwithstanding his fondness for Ayn Rand, and his lack of scientific cred (he's a philosopher), this a well thought out book. He astutely links our current standard of living to copious and inexpensive energy -without this we cannot maintain our living stanard, let alone raise the third world to our level. However, he sounds like a PR man for the fossil fuel industry, and understates the widely accepted risks of increased atmospheric CO2. He correctly points out the limitations of renewals, and gives only passing mention of nuclear energy. In my view, he misses two important technical points that would solve our climate and energy problems: - Nuclear fission is the only scalable non-carbon energy source that is practical in the forseeable future. All that is needed is sound engineering and an evangelist. - Better energy storage devices that have very high density, high cycle count and scalable. This would make wind and solar practical, and have a Hugh impact on transportation. Unfortunately, this one requires some fundamental scientific breakthrough.
