American Energy : The Politics of 21st Century Policy, Paperback / softback Book

American Energy : The Politics of 21st Century Policy Paperback / softback


There are rapid, and sometimes radical, changes now transforming energy production and consumption in the United States.

Utilizing contemporary examples throughout his narrative, Rosenbaum captures this transformation while analyzing how important actors, institutions, and issues impact American energy policymaking.

With clear explanations of relevant energy technologies-from controversial fracking to mountain top mining to nuclear waste storage-the book first looks at the policy options available in governing the energy economy and then discusses specific resources (petroleum and natural gas, coal, nuclear power, electricity, renewable energy, conservation) and the global energy challenges associated with climate change.
