An in-depth look at our energy futureThis book looks at one of the big issues of our time: the global competition for scarce resources that pits the West against the super-hot economies of China and India, plus a clutch of other contenders such as Russia, Brazil, and Indonesia. Whether it is the rare metal lithium from a salt pan in the Andes, gas from the Caspian Sea, oil off the coast of Brazil, coal from Africa's Zambezi River, or uranium from Kazakhstan, China and India are desperate to ensure the security of their future energy supplies. The same goes for food and water as contamination and over-use take their toll. In this wide-ranging work, international business journalist Geoff Hiscock explores the problems, potential solutions, and inevitable tensions in the great global resources scramble.
