At the Cáfe Scientifique meeting last night we were treated to a discussion about what will happen when the oil runs out. During the discussion afterwards there was mention of a book, ‘Sustainable Energy – without the hot air‘ which I have just downloaded as a pdf file and scanned over.
After just a quick look, I heartily recommend it to anyone even slightly interested energy consumption and climate change – written in an extremely easy to read style it manages to explain the concept and dispel the myths. For the techies, the second part of the book gets stuck into the maths, but even then a decent secondary level understanding should get you through it.
Take a look… You can download the pdf from the link below (the file is free for personal use)
