How do you determine the real cost and benefits of energy?

We need energy for many things, including lighting, cooking, transportation, heating & cooling... But which energy source is the best? What are the trade-offs of each?

Pollution needs to be considered, as well as availability. What else should we factor in as we decide what's best? Is there even such as a thing as "the one best source?"

Travel the globe with scholar Johan Norberg, from Morocco to Sweden and throughout the United States, as he explores the pros & cons of the eight main energy sources available to us: coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear, hydro, biomass, wind, and solar.
