Synopsis

In Powering the Future, Nobel laureate Robert B. Laughlin transports us two centuries into the future, when weve ceased to use carbon from the ground. Boldly, Laughlin predicts no earthshattering transformations will have taken place. Six generations from now, there will still be soccer moms, shopping malls, and business trips. Firesides will still be snug and warm. How will we do it? Not by discovering a magic bullet to slay our energy problems but through a slew of fascinating technologies, drawing on wind, water, and fire. Powering the Future is an objective yet optimistic tour through alternative fuel sources, set in a world where weve burned every last drop of petroleum and every last shovelful of coal.
