What emerges is an engrossing discussion that is critical, sophisticated, and plain spoken. Not only does it clearly demonstrate that the two crises are linked—oil being a major cause of climate change—it also shows how this shortage is the cause of political upheaval. Several sustainable alternatives to carbon energy are also realistically discussed. Both challenging and controversial, this examination will be of interest to those seeking an introduction to these issues as well as those looking for a greater depth of analysis.
