"Our civilization's ever-increasing hunger for energy-and its fixation on fossil fuels to provide that energy-is in the process of imploding on itself as our population grows and its demographics change. Yet we live in a world of tough realities, where an elegant solution simply does not exist."

2GreenEnergy founder Craig Shields provides a broad survey of the subject, presenting 25 interviews with the widest possible variety of subject matter specialists-each chosen to provide the reader with an accessible and fair-minded treatment of a particular issue.

The technology, the economics, and the politics of renewables form a fantastically complicated calculus that needs to be thoroughly understood if we are to have relevant, informed discussions on this subject-the most important challenge in the history of mankind-the migration to clean and sustainable energy sources.
