Yergin has said that it will cover the intervening two decades of energy history -- the oil booms in the former Soviet Union, in Brazil and west Africa; the "shale gale," as he calls the revolution in natural gas production in the United States, and of liquefied natural gas in Qatar and elsewhere; and of course climate change and the work on alternative energy including ethanol, solar, wind and batteries, and the implications of hybrid and electric cars.


This should be well worth reading.
