New Internationalist books and publications

Reviews

'An essential read for anyone who is planning to be part of the energy revolution.' - Kim Bryan, Centre for Alternative Technology, Wales.

'These short books supply us with clear, well-written and memorable analyses that cut to the chase.' - Susan George, President of the Board, Transnational Institute.

Few people doubt the threat of climate change and the urgent need to conquer our addiction to fossil fuels. But can renewable sources of energy ever be sufficient to provide modern societies with a decent quality of life? This book is clear they can, and it outlines the strategies to break the barriers to a 100% renewable world.

Danny Chivers presents a compelling introduction to renewable technologies for non-technical readers (solar, wind, hydro, geothermal and ambient heat, wave and tidal, fuel crops, and energy from waste) and a roadmap to powering the world not just sustainably, but democratically.
