Welcome! This guide is for researchers studying energy extraction and use, and its impact on the environment. Here you'll find a number of recommended resources, from books in Yale University's catalog to e-journals and databases to government resources. The lists here are by no means exhaustive; rather they should serve as jumping-off points for your research. Please contact me with any questions.
