Life After Fossil Fuels with author Alice Friedemann

Life After Fossil Fuels with author Alice Friedemann

Today our economy is utterly dependent on fossil fuels. They are essential to transportation, manufacturing, farming, electricity, and to make fertilizers, cement, steel, roads, cars, and half a million other products. This discussion with Alice Friedemann is a reality check on where energy will come from in the future.

Alice Friedemann’s book, “Life After Fossil Fuels: A Reality Check on Alternative Energy,” surveys the arsenal of alternatives – wind, solar, hydrogen, geothermal, nuclear, batteries, catenary systems, fusion, methane hydrates, power2gas, wave, tidal power and biomass – and examines whether they can replace or supplement fossil fuels.
