Contents Notes
"How will the world work in the post-oil, post-coal future? Writers and artists think beyond the weekly fluctuations in the price of gasoline to imagine the transition to a carbon-free future and the radical reinvention of energy that would make it possible. An architect plans "Velo-city," a network of elevated bikeways; a designer models a perfectly internalized. tail-chasing energy system; an urbanist examines the new "Oil Cities" in Dubai and Siberia; a photographer documents the social and environmental damage done in Nigeria by the oil industry; and an architect proposes that oil rigs be turned into sanctuaries for marine and avian wildlife. Reading Fuel, we read our current energy moment in the broader context of a range of possible futures."--Jacket.
