5.0 out of 5 stars Take home message - Economic Growth is a false god, 15 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a must read to give the support for the renunciation of the outdated Economic Growth Mantra. In the transition towards a more sustainable society Czech makes powerful illustrations of the need for reform. Good coverage of the traditional dirge of orthodox economic theory from Mill, Malthus, Adam Smith, Marx, Marshall, Keynes, Solow etc, which is largely irrelevant but of some hjistorical note. It shows the dismal science for what it is.

More positively it makes reference to the Club of Romes Limits to Growth, Donella Meadows, Nicholas Georgescu-Roegen, Herman Daly, H.T. Odum, Charles Hall in the formation of Ecological Economics, which s the emerging paradigm for society and economics.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Big Book with a Big Message, 14 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book combines two important messages about 20th/21st century global development. The importance of the role of Energy in society; and the inadequate treatment of limits to growth by economics.

It is an oversized book with large photographs of energy developments and the environmental destruction caused with easy-to-understand accompanying text seeting out a call for a re-examination of global developmental goals. Essentially a call-to-arms for energy/environmental awareness.


Peeking at Peak Oil
Peeking at Peak Oil
by Kjell Aleklett
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £24.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Take more than a Peek at this book, 14 Sept. 2013

This review is from: Peeking at Peak Oil (Hardcover)
Essential evidence from an independent source unfettered by political bias about the peak oil resource situation. Reading this book confirms the debt of gratitude that should be afforded Colin Campbell, Kjell Aleklett and the peak oil proponents. The book is adorned with interesting graphics and fascinating insights to Kyells journey attempting to educate people on the resource constraint issues in the conventional oil scene.

I like the quote at the beginning attributed to Lord Luce that ...."It was the job of an independent university not to be afraid to annoy people" and I suspect Uppsala University UGES group have fulfilled that much needed void.

This is one of my must-have books about peak oil and it must reach as a wide an audience as possible. Thrilling and inspiring to read a treatise which clearly shouts out to preach the peak oil message afar, in the face of so much opposition to the idea of resource constraints.
