Description
With nearly all of the world's energy consumption dependent on non-renewable resources, Powering Our Future challenges consumers to support changes that will create sustainable energy in the future.

The four biggest energy sources-oil, natural gas, coal, and uranium-currently power our earth. What would happen to global societies if we experienced severe shortages of one or more of these resources? Such a glimpse into the future may become reality sooner than we think. Oil production is soon expected to begin a rapid descent, with natural gas in close pursuit. Powering Our Future is an educational tool that opens the door to a future fueled by sustainable, renewable energy. Consumers will learn: How our world has become dependent on four nonrenewable resources. How each resource impacts us politically, economically, and environmentally. How renewable resources such as hydrogen, wind power, solar energy, biofuels, and more are waiting in the wings. How the transition to a sustainable future will take place, offering economically stable and environmentally safe choices. Powering Our Future is a solution-oriented guide that will empower you to make more informed choices as a voter, a contributor to a global economy, and a citizen of the earth.
