Energy: The Conservation Revolution (Modern Perspectives in Energy) by John Gibbons
English | 1 Mar. 1981 | ISBN: 1461592119 | 276 Pages | PDF | 5 MB
We try in this book to provide a detailed but readable, technical but accessible monograph on energy in the United States. We treat energy as a multidisciplinary challenge and apply the standard tools of economists, physicists, engineers, policy analysts, and, some might claim, fortune tellers. We hope that it will be used in classrooms of various types, and read by the general reader as well. That increased energy efficiency should be the first priority of energy policymakers is a conclusion, not an assumption, of our analysis. Many analysts have arrived at this conclusion while working separately on energy supply problems.
