it was amazing

If you can get past the title, this is a helpful and quantitative overview of the U.S. energy landscape with regards to CO2 emissions and energy security. The simple-to-understand analysis of Fukushima provides a concrete basis for the layman to discuss pros and cons of nuclear power. As the founder of the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature Project, Muller’s skeptical perspective, regarding human-caused climate change, sets the stage for a fairly convincing argument that human activities are causing a substantial increase in atmospheric CO2 concentration. I would recommend this book to anyone looking to get a baseline understanding of feasible and responsible energy sources for the U.S. and the world.
