Beyond Fossil Fools: The Roadmap to Energy Independence by 2040

Availability: Ready to download

If the U.S. solves only its own energy problem, but the world does not, then everyone still loses. Pollution knows no borders and a sinking ship takes down everyone on board. That is why all countries must do what they can to affect a global transition to all-renewable, clean energy by 2040. That means a coordinated global effort with global scope. That means leadership fr If the U.S. solves only its own energy problem, but the world does not, then everyone still loses. Pollution knows no borders and a sinking ship takes down everyone on board. That is why all countries must do what they can to affect a global transition to all-renewable, clean energy by 2040. That means a coordinated global effort with global scope. That means leadership from the United States, Europe, China, India, and Japan. That means diligent commitment from average citizens around the world, and corporate and national leaders.

    Your life is short. And precious. If for no other reason, you should spend it reading books that are valuable. Not with books that are poorly written, sloppily conceived, or just plain wrong, even if the author sends you a free copy. "Beyond Fossil Fuels" manages to be all three. Despite Shuster's 50 years of chemical engineering experience and business acumen, this book is an absolute failure.

If for no other reason, you should spend it reading books that are valuable. Not with books that are poorly written, sloppily conceived, or just plain wrong, even if the author sends you a free copy. "Beyond Fossil Fuels" manages to be all three. Despite Shuster's 50 years of chemical engineering experience and business acumen, this book is an absolute failure. It is simply the extension of his own poorly researched, incoherent ideology of nuclear first, renewable second, fossil fuels never, whose rationale enjoys no backing from economic, engineering, or political science methods and models. Want a decent read about the future of energy? Read the International Energy Agency's "World Energy Outlook." That is the bible for the field and its absence from the book's references (and not a SINGLE publication, report, or dataset from the USDOE's Energy Information Administration either) speaks volumes for the vapidity of this book. Sheer sloppiness.

    If it weren't for the whining 40 pages about Al Gore, I would've given this two stars. But the author comes off as a petulant child: "Why can't I have a Nobel prize?" Is never stated, but that's what I read. His solution: breeder reactors, which are really really safe! (Ahem) "Chernobyl could never happen here." I agree with him in that nuclear power is the only solution. But we are going to have to live with Chernobyl type accidents. Fukushima exclusion zones will dot the earth like chicken pox If it weren't for the whining 40 pages about Al Gore, I would've given this two stars.

Fukushima exclusion zones will dot the earth like chicken pox. If we want an electrical world, that's going to be the cost. I would've given this two, perhaps three stars for content, but it was the whining tone that gets the one star. If you want what you write to be taken seriously, don't try to sound like Rush Limbaugh.

    No nonsense look at energy issues. Author discounts the global warming dialog as UNimportant: crisis is end of oil. His convincingly posed solution is NUCLEAR. His credentials are solid, research seems grounded. I recommend this one as a look at the pros and cons of nuclear energy. Author makes some very solid points: safety is not as much a problem as we think, processes for dealing with spent fuel are developing and no time to wait for other alternatives.

    Made me realize that Global Warming, is a just a symptom for the more immediate problem of our dependence on fossil fuels. Also made me think about Nuclear Power with a bit less bias, despite my being an environmentalist and living in a state that might have to manage the fallout.
