Apocalypse Soon « the Air Vent
I have been reading a book which is crucially interesting and which sadly bode ill for the future, particularly for our children and our childrenâ's children.
"Sustainable Energy Without the Hot Air" by Professor David J C Mackay, see: http://www.withouthotair.com/, the entire book or subchapters can be downloaded free on the internet. And, also see a recent review in the Economist at http://www.economist.com/books/displaystory.cfm?story_id=13437900
