Summary and Info
The best thing about this book is that it is printed on recycled paper.
Unfortunately, all the information is recycled, too. A long-time political activist, the author simply reiterates old-green dogma in the face of an unprecedented crisis.
He grasps the nature of the problem but falls short on solutions. So we read more pleas for intermittent and unpredictable energy sources, more bemoaning the world's unwillingness to cooperate with the old-green agenda, and more histrionics about proven solutions that don't fit the approved doctrine. For support, the author marshals the opinions of people who agree with him and he can't seem to find unbiased, authoritative sources that offer the desired conclusions.
There are much better books on this subject, for example, Terrestrial Energy by William Tucker.
