Energy economist, Peter Tertzakian's new book, THE END OF ENERGY OBESITY, examines the link between economic growth, improved quality of life, and greater consumption. Reviewing conventional reactions to historical energy crisis, Tertzakian explains why past options fail to meet todays needs. Despite the hope being placed in renewable energy, clean-tech devices, offshore drilling, efficiency gains and carbon taxes, the sheer scale of our seven billion-person global village means we cant satisfy the worlds demand for affordable, clean, and secure energy by following old paradigm approaches.
