Description - The Quest by Daniel Yergin
Energy, and the power and riches that come with it, is the driving force in our world. In The Quest, his bestselling follow-up to The Prize, Daniel Yergin shows how the battle for energy is radically reshaping the globe - from the rise of China to the return of Russia to the Arab Spring - and looks at what the future holds. Are we really running out of oil? How can we keep the world going and protect our environment and security? Will we soon all drive electric cars? Can renewables work on a large scale? What will the next crisis be? The Quest vividly reveals the decisions, technologies, and individuals that are shaping our future.
