The report of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis is a fascinating picture of how a sustainable world energy system for the next 50 years can be achieved. Hoffmann and Johnson propose a course of cooperation among OPEC, industrial and developing countries that should maximize supplies of conventional and newer fuels. Choucri's complex model is used to test a variety of ideas as they affect producers, users and oil companies.
