In a world where climate change has become a proven reality, it is clear that global energy consumption is currently on an unsustainable path. Humankind's insatiable appetite for energy has sparked a new crisis, and there is a deep uncertainty about what the long term physical, economic and social impacts of global warming will be. This revised and updated book examines the climate-energy equation in a post-Fukushima world, examining the implications of this crisis for energy choices and energy policies around the world. The book follows a regional approach, including detailed discussions of regional resource endowment, history and sensitivity to climate change, and the effects of the recent global crash on economic and geopolitical tensions. Chevalier and Geoffron offer a concise account of what is in store for our future, and provide an original view on the energy transition, taking account of energy poverty, and the possible future of nuclear energy and renewable energy sources in a globalized world.
