The End of Energy is a timely book on an important topic. Each chapter offers a gripping story, a history lesson, and a public policy moral. With scholarly care and policy insight, Michael Graetz shows step by step–and misstep by misstep–how the world has ended up with greater dependency on fossil fuels than ever, despite constant calls for a changed energy path that would cut emissions, reduce the threat of climate change, and end the national security burdens that come with vast quantities of imported oil. The book is of special interest to students, policymakers, business leaders, and anyone interested in the story of US energy policy.
