Thursday September 2010


The Honorable Spencer Abraham Former Energy Secretary of the United States, 2005 - 2008, Chairman & CEO, Abraham Group, LLC

In Lights Out, former Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham debunks many of the myths that warp the current debate over America’s energy policy.

Drawing on the very latest thinking from both industry and academia, as well as his own experiences running the Department of Energy, Abraham offers a fresh approach to the daunting challenges posed by rising global energy demand, geopolitical instability, and the environmental impact of energy production and consumption. What emerges is a pragmatic strategy for blending a variety of energy sources including nuclear, clean coal, solar, wind, and natural gas with a more determined effort to improve efficiency through smart energy grids and buildings.

Coming in the midst of a national debate about global warming, energy dependence, and rising energy prices, and rich with anecdotes from the author's service in the Senate and cabinet, this book will undoubtedly help shape our energy future.
