"Without a doubt the most sensible book...on the prospects and promise of renewable energy."-- "Energy blog"
"The future of renewable energy is obscured by ignorance, noise, ideology, and all sorts of misconceptions --from both cornucopians and catastrophists. Our Renewable Future describes the reality: the transition is possible, but it won't be easy."--Ugo Bardi, University of Florence and The Club of Rome
