The myths and facts about alternative fuels–and how they impact our lives

As the price of energy continues to soar, so too has the demand for alternative energy. But there's no clear “winner” in the race to replace fossil fuels. Alternative Energy For Dummies explores the current fossil fuel conundrum and society's growing need for more and more energy. Cutting through the competing claims, this book offers a multifaceted examination of alternative energy, including solar, wind, nuclear, biomass, geothermal, biofuel, and other sources. Each alternative scenario is compared to current fossil-fuel intensive practices in the scientific, environmental, social, political, and economic realms. Readers also gain insight into the future of energy production.

Rik DeGunther (Rescue, CA) holds a bachelor's degree in engineering physics and a dual master's degree in applied physics and engineering economic systems. He is a design engineer and the founder of Efficient Homes, an energy auditing and consulting firm. DeGunther is also the author of Solar Power Your Home For Dummies (978-0-470-17569-9) and Energy Efficient Homes For Dummies (978-0-470-37602-7).
