Free public lecture

Friends of the Library Presents:
Gregory Meehan on his book, "Thank You Fossil Fuels and Good Night: The 21st Century's Energy Transition"

Gregory Meehan’s book, Thank You Fossil Fuels & Good Night. (University of Utah Press, 2017) addresses the question, “Where are we in the lifecycle of fossil fuels?” Competitive technology for sourcing renewable energy, marketplace readiness, and pressures from climate change all signal that the fossil fuel era is coming to an end. This book explains the alternatives and suggests when and how change will occur. Employing a global perspective and detailed analysis, it provides recommendations on policies and strategies to make a smooth and wholesale transition to renewables before the continued use of fossil fuels becomes economically and socially disruptive.

Gregory Meehan has long held an interest in energy and began his career studying chemical engineering, before life took him into the field of infectious disease diagnostics. After retiring in 2013, his interest in energy resurfaced. Post retirement, he served as a volunteer for the Director of National Parks in Moab that revived his interest in strategic planning of the future use of natural energy resources.
