"Jaccard's book is perhaps the most comprehensive analysis of the sources of energy that has been produced, here or elsewhere. Policy makers in Ontario should be forced to read it, and also the host of misguided environmentalists who think there is a soft fix to a hard problem." Robert M. MacIntosh, Globe and Mail
"Even less-optimistic readers or those unconvinced by the arguments will find Jaccard's case worth careful consideration" -Science Magazine
"Mark Jaccard's book does not have a catchy title and will not make the best-seller lists, but it stands to influence what kind of car you drive and how you heat your home" - Judy Stoffman, Toronto Star
