Energy Aftermath, T.H. Lee, B.C. Ball Jr., R.D. Tabors, 288 pp.,

Three well-known scholar-practitioners discuss how all sectors of society
contributed to the blunders in the energy industry: academics and scientists
oversold their ability to analyze and forecast; business leaders searched for
simplistic solutions; policy makers preferred high-sounding slogans to studying
the complexities of the issue; consumer groups promoted their causes with little
reference to economic and market realities. Offers a future approach with many
paths to integrate energy systems.
