By making use of the latest in world energy statistics, author Mark Lynas shows that with wind and solar still at only about one percent of global primary energy, looking to renewable energy as a solution to deliver all the worlds power is a dangerously delusional concept. Moreover, with no possibility reducing the worlds energy usage-when the developing world is fast extricating itself from poverty and adding the equivalent of a new Brazil to the global electricity consumption each year-additional solutions are needed. This book then details how the antinuclear movement of the 1970s and 1980s succeeded only in making the world more dependent on fossil fuels. Instead of making the same mistake again, this book shows how all those who want to see a low-carbon future need to join forces by backing an ambitious proposal for a combined investment in wind, solar, and nuclear power.

  1. Nödvändig teknik: Samarbete! Alla borde läsa den!
    Staffan Lindahl, 31 januari 2014

    Det mest hoppingivande på länge: Storbritannien, där sol, vind, CCS och kärnkraft äntligen samarbetar. Applåderat av Greenpeace. Eloge till modet hos Engelska GP. Tekniken (IFR) är nödvändig. Som baskomplemeten. Ekonomifrågan avgörande. Standardisering, modulisering. Opinion. Kunskap istället för "religiöst" motstånd i en-gång-för-all fattade åsikter.
    Läs även David JC Mackay! En av de viktigaste klimatböckerna på mycket länge. Borde stå på alla Akademibokandelns hyllor.
