The Perfect Energy Resource

Hartman, Thomas
February 2007
Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Feb2007, Vol. 79 Issue 2, p13
The author asserts that energy conservation with no marginal environmental risk is the perfect near-term energy resource. He says that the engineering industry has a special responsibility to protect society against energy-related environment risks. He encourages serious work in creating the perfect energy resource instead of fossil-fueled power plants.
