No easy answers to the energy question

Coal is the biggest contributor to global warming and negatively impacts the environment and human health.

Oil skews America's foreign policy and leads us into wars.

Nuclear power is so complex that human fallibility leads to disaster.

Solar and wind energy, ironically, bring out the least likely of critics: environmentalists and the NIMBY-focused middle class.

Efficiency gains can counter-intuitively lead to more energy use.

Oh, what is the human race to do?
