Review of 'Energy for future presidents' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

I would have given this book five stars, but just can't get behind this guy's ideas regarding electric cars. Maybe it's because I've yet to become as critical of the sustainability movement as he is. Muller's frank discussion of climate change and renewable energy options was refreshing and educational. He jumps right into the muck of things with a 101 of Fukushima, and continues to be "controversial" all the way through the end. I'd highly recommend this book to all the other engineers I know.
