Hot, Flat, and Crowded by Thomas Friedman (2008)
Friedman discusses the past 40 years of world energy use. This book will help you understand the need for clean energy even if you don’t care about the issue.
The author explains the history of the Middle East oil regulation. Most importantly, you’ll be shocked by the energy use that will be required by the exploding populations of China and India.
Enjoy learning about energy in an informative way. I was surprised that this was not a boring book and was a fast way to understand energy for the future.
