2 from FPJ dealing with energy

The Energy Crisis
P. E. Hodgson - 08/15/08
The debate over energy has been going on for some time, but in recent months it has reached fever pitch. With war abroad and presidential campaigns at home, the consideration of each potential energy source—whether fossil fuel, hydro, or nuclear power—comes with a large package of political rhetoric attached. In this charged environment, the facts are often obscured. Here, physicist P. E. Hodgson offers a clear-sighted analysis of the sources, costs, and consequences of each of the major energy stores usable today, refreshingly free of rhetoric and strong on empirical evaluation

Last Things: Oil
James V. Schall, S.J. - 08/13/08
