China and India's ferocious economic growth is based on coal-generated electricity. <p class="MsoNormal">Coal currently looks like a solution to many of our fast-growing energy problems.

He is one of the world's foremost peak oil educators and the award-winning author of seven previous books, including Peak Everything and The Party's Over
