Item Details

Energy is one of the major issues of our time. As the world's population increases, and as our living standards rise, we are using more and more energy. Can that energy be produced in a clean and sustainable way? This series explains the technology and economics of energy. It also looks at the social and environmental impact of the ways in which we produce and distribute it through the world. Fossil Fuels explores the energy we produce from coal, oil, and natural gas. Today most of the world's electricity is generated by burning these fuels, but the waste gases this produces pollute the atmosphere and damage the environment. Today, the search is on for cleaner and safer ways of using fossil fuels, and for alternative fuels. This book explains the technology and investigates the impact of fossil fuels, as well as assessing the part they may play in providing energy in the future. Book jacket.
