This book helps readers to understand the complicated issues relating to oil. Readers will examine whether oil is running out, the problems that accompany oil use, and energy sources that might replace oil. Is oil a finite resource? Does it undermine national security? Is nuclear energy a valuable replacement for oil? These and other issues are debated in a pro versus con format, so that readers benefit from a balance of divergent viewpoints.
