Geostrategy of the Light Bulb

Original title: Geoestrategia de la bombilla
Category: Non-Fiction
Synopsis:

Nuclear energy for a clean sky

Every day we consume more energy. Plasma screens, air conditioners, scooters, cars, buses, and cell phones. All connected to the electricity grid. And yet we refuse to build new nuclear power plants, so where do we expect this energy to come from? There are only two solutions. One is to produce it with coal. The other is to buy it from third parties. The first is highly polluting. The second weakens us geostrategically.

 

Geostrategy of the Light Bulb delves into the science of energy, the ways we have of producing it now and in the future, the ways its extraction, production, and distribution alter the world order, birthing new countries from scratch, generating armed conflict, or closing borders forever. A journey from underground minerals to projects that sound like science fiction, this book explains history and politics from a novel perspective to make us aware of our consumption and the contradictions of the world we live in.

An essential manual for understanding the extraction, production, and distribution of energy worldwide and its role on the geostrategic chessboard of the great world powers.

In this powerful tract, García renews his activism on behalf of nuclear energy as the only path too an energy transition demanded by the current climate emergency.
