Product description


'“There is no author whose books I look forward to more than Vaclav Smil"

(Bill Gates)

“This book is about physical rather than social sciences. It explores important topics around how energy works, how our production and use might evolve, and how this affects climate change.”

(Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook)

"A breath of fresh air and a gem in the bookshop. Rich in thoughtful insights and written in sparkling prose"

(Professor David G. Victor - School of Global Policy and Strategy, UC San Diego)


"This admirably clear and comprehensive guide shows how we use and misuse energy, and the prospects, as ever more if us devour the Earth's diminishing capital of fossil fuels."

(Sir Crispin Tickell - British Ambassador to the United Nations)
