A New Era for Energy?
Is there an energy revolution in the works? Vijay Vaitheeswaran, energy and environmental correspondent for The Economist, thinks so. In his new book Power to the People, Vaitheeswaran argues that the global liberalization of energy markets, the growing popular appeal of environmentalism, and a surge in technological innovation will end the oil and coal age and usher in a radically new energy era characterized by Green "micropower." Is Vaitheeswaran right? Come judge for yourself.
