"The earth is finite. Fossil fuels are not renewable. As these fuels run short in years and very short in decades, the global economic system will need to find an alternative source of energy or it will completely collapse. Equally disturbing, fossil fuel combustion produces carbon dioxide--the greenhouse gas attributed to climate change scientists are warning could lead to mass drought, famine and positive feedbacks that increase warming further. Could the entire world be facing the catastrophic culmination of events in human history? As articulately explained in great detail in "The Nuclear Economy, ' none of the purported solutions to the energy problem will work--except one. If you are wondering why the entire global economy is screeching to a halt, why oil prices are extremely volatile, and why nothing seems to change--this books holds all the answers."--Page 4 of cover.
