An old hand at energy, technology, and climate, Cocks (engineering, Duke U.) declares that science and engineering truths are independent of political viewpoint or vested interest, and proceeds to set out those truths to help laypeople of any persuasion argue their case more accurately in public debate about energy and climate change. He begins with questions, such as past and future ice ages, the fossil fuel supply, and nuclear power. Then he turns to answers, among them solar, wind, water, geothermal, conservation, biodiesel, and nuclear energy. A further section considers dreams, which include thermal and salinity gradients, fuel cells, magneto-hydrodynamics, thermionics, artificial photosynthesis, terraforming, off-planet solar, and nuclear power. The final section, Nightmares, is very short. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
