Description
This book offers an international, first-stop look at dependence on natural resources.Studies predict that world energy consumption will increase by 59 percent before the year 2020. Faced with skyrocketing energy costs, dwindling supplies of fossil fuels, and increasing environmental degradation, people around the globe are becoming more and more resourceful in finding more efficient ways to fuel modes of transportation, heat and light their homes and businesses, and power the production of goods of all kinds.""Energy Supply and Renewable Resources"" examines the history behind industrialized nations' dependence on natural resources, particularly fossil fuels, as well as developing nations' increasing consumption of these resources. This eye-opening guide draws parallels between the energy-related challenges faced by the United States and those of several key nations: China, Germany, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, and Venezuela. Through primary source documents, statistical data, graphs, and charts, this accessible book surveys current energy consumption and production trends, and presents evidence of the need to harness alternative, renewable sources of energy. It also studies the environmental, economic, and political effects of existing energy infrastructures; reviews current energy policies; studies threats to energy supply; highlights those nations playing key roles in current and future energy production; and presents research on the use of emerging energy alternatives.
