Ronald Stein and Todd Royal, two seasoned veterans of the energy industry, explore the implications of a world reliant on intermittent green electricity in this book.
They highlight how the use of petroleum led to the Industrial Revolution; the dark side of electric vehicles, wind turbines, and solar panels; and why China and India – two of the world’s most populous countries – are rejecting the use of renewable electricity from wind and solar.
Before fossil fuels, life was hard and dirty with shorter life expectancies. Thousands of products made from petroleum derivatives used for medications, electronics, plastics, and transportation simply did not exist.
Many developing countries still don’t have easy access to fossil fuels. With limited transportation systems and few petroleum-based products, they do not enjoy the same opportunities as others.
Meanwhile, leaders around the globe are suggesting intermittent electricity from solar panels and wind turbines can save us. The reality, however, is much more complicated.
Find out what the world would really be like without fossil fuels with the insights and wisdom in Just GREEN Electricity.
