Summary
While there are many important issues facing America, Muller feels that the most crucial is energy. He illustrates that point by reminding readers of the near-meltdown on Fukushima, the upheavals in the Middle East, the BP oil rig explosion, and the reality of global warming. Muller is back to educate us all about our energy priorities now and in the future.--
Summary
Points out the importance of the world's energy supply in shaping global politics, and argues that the energy source of the future should be natural gas in the form of shale deposits
