This book provides a detailed examination of energy security from a hands-on, technical point of view, with the goal of giving perspective to the overall role of energy in our society, as well as the key factors and variables impacting our energy security. The author reviews the major energy sources -- coal, crude oil, natural gas, renewables, and other alternative fuels and technologies -- in terms of both how they influence our energy security now, and what impact may likely be expected in the future. Topics include the full scope of technical, logistic, regulatory, social, political and financial aspects of modern energy products and technologies. The advantages and disadvantages of the different fuels, technologies, energy strategies, regulations, and policies are reviewed in detail. This book is a "must read" for energy executives, environmental specialists, investors, bankers, lawyers, regulators, politicians, and anyone involved or interested in today's and tomorrow's energy production, use and security.
