Global climate change is one of the most important issues humanity faces today. This book assesses the sensible, senseless and biased proposals for averting the potentially disastrous consequences of global warming, allowing the reader to draw their own conclusions on switching to more sustainable energy provision. Burton Richter is a Nobel Prize-winning scientist who has served on many US and international review committees on climate change and energy issues. He provides a concise overview of our knowledge and uncertainties within climate change science , discusses current energy demand and supply patterns, and the energy options available to cut emissions of greenhouse gases. Written in non-technical language, this book presents a balanced view of options for moving from our heavy reliance on fossil fuels into a much more sustainable energy system, and is accessible to a wide range of readers without scientific backgrounds - students, policymakers, and the concerned citizen.

Burton Richter March 22, — July 18,   was an American physicist. This discovery was part of the November Revolution of particle physics. He was the SLAC director from to He then joined the faculty of Stanford University , becoming a full professor in Atomic Energy Commission. This discovery was also made by the team led by Samuel Ting at Brookhaven National Laboratory , but he called the particle J. Richter and Ting were jointly awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for their work.
From the editorial review at amazon. Burton Richter, a Nobel Laureate in physics, has written a cogent analysis of what is known — and not known — about climate change and about the components of the energy system that contribute to climate change or that are offered as a means to mitigate it. This book should be required reading for anyone who seeks to understand one of the most significant global challenges that confronts humankind.
