Summary
While there are many important issues facing America, Muller feels that the most crucial is energy. He illustrates that point by reminding readers of the near-meltdown on Fukushima, the upheavals in the Middle East, the BP oil rig explosion, and the reality of global warming. Muller is back to educate us all about our energy priorities now and in the future.--
