Publisher's Summary

This special issue on energy solutions for a sustainable world includes five articles.

First, it's an overview on how to cope with global warming with energy technology and policy.

Then, we'll hear a plan to keep carbon in check, followed by how to balance the abundant supply and relatively low price of coal with its environmental risks.

We'll then talk about the rise of renewable energy sources, and finally, delve into ways to power our transportation future.
