Product description

Review

'Ian Roberts presents a refreshingly novel and objective look at two of the biggest Public Health challenges of this century - obesity and climate change - and the inescapable link between them. No longer is obesity a "lifestyle condition" or a problem of greedy, sloth couch potatoes. It is an inevitable consequence of our globally oil-dependent society. Read on and you should be convinced enough to reclaim your life... and your planet.' Sir Ian Gilmore, Royal College of Physicians 'In responding to climate change, the light from a constellation of medical professionals has been exemplary and shown clearly the way ahead for all of us. With his book The Energy Glut Professor Roberts reveals he is a truly bright star in that constellation.' Aubrey Meyer, Global Commons Institute 'The Energy Glut a 'must-read' for anyone involved in public health, nutrition, the environment, transport and energy policy.' Jonathan Porritt, Forum for the Future
