Sustainable Fossil Fuels

The Unusual Suspect in the Quest for Clean and Enduring Energy

More and more people believe we must quickly wean ourselves from fossil fuels - oil, natural gas and coal - to save the planet from environmental catastrophe, wars and economic collapse. In this 2006 book, Professor Jaccard argues that this view is misguided. We have the technological capability to use fossil fuels without emitting climate-threatening greenhouse gases or other pollutants. The transition from conventional oil and gas to their unconventional sources including coal for producing electricity, hydrogen and cleaner-burning fuels will decrease energy dependence on politically unstable regions. In addition, our vast fossil fuel resources will be the cheapest source of clean energy for the next century and perhaps longer, which is critical for the economic and social development of the world's poorer countries. By buying time for increasing energy efficiency, developing renewable energy technologies and making nuclear power more attractive, fossil fuels will play a key role in humanity's quest for a sustainable energy system.


"Jaccard's book is perhaps the most comprehensive analysis of the sources of energy that has been produced, here or elsewhere. Policy makers in Ontario should be forced to read it, and also the host of misguided environmentalists who think there is a soft fix to a hard problem." Robert M. MacIntosh, Globe and Mail

"Even less-optimistic readers or those unconvinced by the arguments will find Jaccard's case worth careful consideration" -Science Magazine

"Mark Jaccard's book does not have a catchy title and will not make the best-seller lists, but it stands to influence what kind of car you drive and how you heat your home" - Judy Stoffman, Toronto Star

'Discussions of energy options too often over simplify the world into good guys and bad guys. In his latest book, Mark Jaccard has done us all a service. He has brought cool analysis and common sense to a complex area of public policy fraught with myth and image management. His objective is to consider what might constitute a more sustainable energy system and in this he considers not only the usual suspects (energy efficiency, nuclear and renewables) but the unusual - fossil fuels. In doing so, he moves beyond the simplistic rhetoric and offers us practical policy recommendations that deserve serious consideration.' Milton Catelin, Chief Executive, World Coal Institute

'Does preventing global warming require an end to fossil fuels? Jaccard makes a strong case that significant fossil fuel use and climate protection can co-exist, without harming economic growth. Read the book and decide for yourself.' David Hawkins, Director, Climate Center, Natural Resources Defense Council

'Jaccard's book offers an important perspective on the major challenges posed by conventional energy. CO2 emissions from fossil fuel burning must be curbed and oil dependence must be reduced to address climate-change and oil-supply-insecurity concerns. Many understand that this implies making energy use more efficient and increasing renewable energy roles. But few realize that fossil energy technologies can be modified at relatively low incremental costs to help address these concerns with CO2 capture and storage technologies. This book addresses this issue. It is a marvelous primer showing why this option must be taken seriously by policymakers and the general public.' Robert Williams, Senior Research Scientist, Princeton Environmental Institute, Princeton University

'Mark Jaccard's analysis of the potential contribution of fossil fuels provides a much-needed contrast to the more extreme views of imminent resource exhaustion.' G. Campbell Watkins, co-editor of The Energy Journal

'This is an optimistic book. It significantly broadens energy perspectives. In the general discourse, energy is often associated with serious challenges: security of supply, peace, climate change, many other environmental issues, and the unfilled needs of energy services for economic growth and poverty alleviation for a majority of the world's population. This book presents new technically and economically feasible options that promise to address these challenges. There is light in the tunnel, and it is now up to all stakeholders, and our political processes, to realize these options! I strongly recommend this book to all concerned about our common future!.' Thomas Johansson, Professor and Director, International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics, Lund University

'Make no mistake. Mark Jaccard's Sustainable Fossil Fuels is a beacon for rational decision-making in 21st century. Buy it and read it. It could change your world forever.' The Globe and Mail

'Accessible to non-academics, this book is a description of what our energuy requirements are likely to be, not what they ought to be. Throughout we are reminded that much will depend on our collective need to respect the physical strain the planet may come under.' Resource
