ENERGY - Its current use and distribution in the United States, and in many other nations of the World, results in three potentially disastrous consequences to society: Near Term - A cutoff of the oil supplies with an incredible disruption to the nation's ecomy Intermediate Term - Global warming would result in climate distribution changes and rising ocean levels, with the destruction of cities and displacement of many hundreds of millions of people Long Term - The depletion of all ecomically usable fossil energy forms is that society as we kw it would t survive. An All Electric Society, supplied by nuclear energy, supplemented by solar, is the solution. These issues, their timing, and the possible, conceivable, solutions to these future consequences are discussed and quantified by the author. The Intermediate Term can be delayed with conservation and some new energy sources, and the most serious, the Long Term, will be solved only by optimizing how we use energy and by the use of both solar and nuclear energy. The logic and public concern of the nuclear option is certainly most controversial and the pros and cons of this debate are developed in the book.
