5.0 out of 5 stars At last a tool to brandish in a discussion, July 9, 2009
This review is from: Sustainable Energy - Without the Hot Air (Paperback)
This book is available on the web, but if you want to read comfortably,
I think you are better off buying it.
It's particularly well written, makes for a great read, which is rare for
a book that's full of numbers. It dispels a lot of the stupid myths you hear going around, a lot of it bandied about by journalists, who get a bit of a bashing in the book.
The author does not have all the answers as he cannot predict the future
but he does quote a lot of limits that have been set up by physicists.

I had a lot of surprises, like the low efficiency of biomass in the UK.
OK, so this book is mainly aimed at the UK, but with a little adaptation
it could be made relevant to many more countries.
It would also need to be continually updated, but that's nitpicking considering the worth of this book.
Enjoy it.
