520 2  "Smart Energy: From Fire Making to the Post-Carbon World 
       first traces the history of mankind's discovery and use of
       energy. It then reviews contemporary issues such as global
       warming, environmental deterioration, depletion of carbon 
       energy sources, and energy disputes. Next, it evaluates 
       technical innovations, system change, and international 
       cooperation. Then, it tackles how civilization will evolve
       in light of meeting future energy needs, how Smart Energy 
       will meet these needs, and defines the global mission. It 
       ends with a summary of China's vision of a Smart Energy 
       future. This is required reading for everyone concerned 
       about energy, environment, economy, human survival, and 
       development."--Provided by publisher.
