One of the main thrusts of Matt Ridley's book, is that sharing ideas, is fundamental to human progress. Ironically there are no forums on Matt's own website promoting discussion about the ideas he expounds. That is why I have come to discuss his ideas on Amazon's pages.

Does anyone else feel he missed out on tackling the theme of an irreversible tipping point with regard to climate change and warming the planet?

He points us towards the idea of limitless energy as related in Peter Huber's book, "The Bottomless Well", but we don't really get to hear, how this will be acheived in practice.
