Sustainable Energy - Without the Hot Air
Available for a free download online. This is a great resource to help clear up the information signal on energy.
Everyone says getting off fossil fuels is important, and we’re all encouraged to “make a difference,” but many of the things that allegedly make a difference don’t add up. …People get emotional (for example about wind farms or nuclear power) and no-one talks about numbers. Or if they do mention numbers, they select them to sound big, to make an impression, and to score points in arguments, rather than to aid thoughtful discussion.” (MacKay, 2009)
We’re using this as a resource as we develop the “Energy League and Brackets Campaign.”
