Author: Peter Tertzakian
Solutions for ending America's energy consumption crisis Most of the discussion among experts, policymakers, and concerned citizens is about changing the nature of our energy diet--substituting traditional energy sources with new or improved alternatives--or on getting "more" out of our energy resources through improvements in efficiency. Although these are necessary advances worthy of scientific and entrepreneurial endeavor, and an undeniable part of a successful overall strategy, turning to alternative sources and improving the efficiency of the energy we consume will not solve the problems we are facing. In The End of Energy Obesity, energy expert and bestselling author Peter Tertzakian takes the energy discussion a step further by examining habits, lifestyles, mindsets, and technologies that might seem futuristic now, but will soon become part of the way we live. Throughout the book, Tertzakian identifies the causes and solutions to the world's energy addiction.
He also emphasizes that to have a successful impact on reducing our energy appetite, the changes we make to our lifestyle, habits, and mindset will need to be so appealing that they are widely adopted, much as the automobile or the light bulb was a century ago. Filled with in-depth insights and practical advice, The End of Energy Obesity puts the world's energy problem in perspective and reveals the steps we can take to slow the upward trend of global energy consumption while still growing our economy and improving our standard of living.
