Fuels for the Future

As a carbon-restricted future becomes more likely, industries are turning their attention toward the mix fuels that will be used to power our future. Energy groups advocating specific fuels have boldly stepped forward with single-solution visions of our energy future. Yet serious concerns about most fuels remain. This debate comes at a time when the energy industry is facing many other challenges - not the least of which is ever-expanding consumer demand and the need for new electrical infrastructure. What should the response be? The possibilities are explored from a variety of vantage points by Marvin Odum, Sen. Ken Salazar and Amory Lovins.
