Book Chapter
Information on global energy supply from a section of the book "Energy" is presented. It notes that energy supplies are not evenly distributed since some countries produce more than they need. Fossil fuels are sold by energy-rich countries to energy-poor ones. Particular focus is given to oil pipelines, along with how much energy certain countries or continents make. Wyoming houses some of the biggest coal mines in the world, while Denmark has one of the world's largest offshore wind farms.
