By taking Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth to the next level, The GeoPolitics of Energy: Achieving a Just and Sustainable Energy Distribution by 2040 by Judith Wright, Ph.D. and James Conca, Ph.D. not only raises awareness of the issues surrounding global warming, but provides concrete solutions. Straightforward and succinct, this powerful work is comprised of dramatic photos and meticulous research. With over twenty timelines and predictive graphs, the planet's future energy needs are plotted in a way to break down complex issues and inspire intelligent discussions on the future of the earth-a living planet. Proactive and timely, the authors take expanding energy use of industrialized countries and the energy needs of developing countries into account as they forge a template of directives that convey not what should happen, but what must happen if all the citizens of planet earth are allowed to enjoy the wonders of technological advances and the bounties of the natural world.
