Summary
"In this updated and enlarged edition, preeminent chemists discuss in a clear and readily accessible manner the pros and cons of humankind's current main energy sources, while providing new ways to overcome obstacles. Following an introduction, the authors look at the interrelationship of fuels and energy, and at the extent of our non -renewable fossil fuels. They also discuss the hydrogen economy and its significant shortcomings. The main focus is on the conversion of C02 from industrial as well as natural sources into liquid methanol and related DME, a diesel fuel substitute that can replace LNG and LPG. The book is rounded off with an optimistic look at future possibilities."--BOOK JACKET
