TEOTWAWKI

That title stands for The End Of The world As We Know It or, as Wendy Grossman sums it up:

Energy books can be logically divided into three categories.

One, apocalyptics: fossil fuels are going to run out (and sooner than you think), the world will continue to heat up, billions will die, and the few of us who survive will return to hunting, gathering, and dying young. Two, deniers: fossil fuels aren’t going to run out, don’t be silly, and we can tackle global warming by cleaning them up a bit.

Here. Have some clean coal.

Three, optimists: fossil fuels are running out, but technology will help us solve both that and global warming. Have some clean coal and a side order of photovoltaic panels.
