5.0 out of 5 stars If everyone read this book.... the world would change!, 4 Feb. 2014
Amazing insight into the politics and business of energy policy at the very top level in the UK, and stark warnings for failing to act proactively before an oil shock as demand overshoots supply.

Perhaps my only personal position in potential conflict is that I see the need to prevent runaway climate change as so important, that I feel one final programme of nuclear is a necessary evil (& certainly not switching off existing nuclear facilities), alongside the highly aggressive expansion of renewables and energy efficiency.

Jeremy Leggett practices what he preaches with the creation Solar Century, and the inspirational Solar Aid project which has provided loans (leveraged from 5% of Solar Century annual profits) to replace expensive & dangerous kerosene lamps in Africa with solar powered LED lamps. And they are closing in on their first MILLION lamps! Incredible achievement.

Having bought all the YK's material so far, they just keep getting better. My favourites are Glasshouse, Love My name, Human Again, Go to Ground, Running from a standing start, Silver tongue, Vision in rags, Woman.

I can't wait to see them live soon!
