Description (excerpt):

Energy keeps us warm, cools us down, and cooks our meals. It helps us connect with our children, and lights the garages and labs of entrepreneurs and inventors building a better world. Energy harvests our food, fuels our factories, builds our cities, and cleans our water. It keeps us mobile and connected with others near and far. The 21st century already has witnessed major changes in how people use energy – for example, Internet-connected smartphones were introduced only around 2000; today there are more than 2.5 billion of them worldwide. This century also has seen tremendous advances in energy technology – including the ones that unlocked North America’s vast resources of unconventional oil and natural gas.
