With case studies from the US, the UK, China and India, this title asks how important coal, gas and nuclear will be in the future global energy mix. Find out what is being done to clean up coal, the dirtiest of all fossil fuels.  With the growth of fracking in the US improving energy security in the States, what are the potential benefits and environmental risks associated with it in the UK?
