Description

Current events related to energy policy – skyrocketing gasoline prices, the 2003 Northeast Blackout, the Kyoto Protocol’s enactment, passage of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, and the influence of recent Gulf Coast hurricanes on energy supplies and prices – demand innovative approaches towards conceptualizing the relationship between energy and American society. This book takes on a central quandary in the study of energy and environmental policy: What myths continue to exist in American culture concerning energy, the environment, and society? It enrolls twenty-four of the nation’s top experts working on energy policy in industry, government laboratories, utilities, nonprofit organizations, and universities to debunk and contextualize thirteen energy myths relating to electric power, renewable energy, energy efficiency, transportation, and climate change. While the book focuses on the American experience, it will be of interest to those working in the fields of energy policy, energy and the environment, and technology assessment worldwide. ‘This is a brilliant, bold, and fascinating book …that should be read by anybody even remotely concerned about energy, the environment, or the future of American society.’ Art Rosenfeld, Commissioner, California Energy Commission and recipient of the 2006 Enrico Fermi Award ‘…This work is a must-read for anyone interested in American energypolicy.’ Kateri Callahan, President, Alliance to Save Energy ‘…By collecting the best minds to debunk the greatest of these myths, Sovacool and Brown have brought us a step closer to finding a national energy policy based on common sense.’ Chris Cooper, Executive Director, Network for New Energy Choices ‘… Sovacool and Brown provide a bold and imaginative way forward.’ John A. 'Skip' Laitner, Visiting Fellow and Senior Economist, American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy
