A very important book for every one who is interested in understanding the implications of the 'green economy'. Most importantly it tackles the fallacious idea of 'win/win' outcomes of going green and the dishonesty surrounding the inevitable decline in output and living standards on the grounds of the dubious merits of being poorer but with greater equality (which is, of course, where we were in the stone age). Proponents of the green economy liken this scenario to the war years where we were all worse off but accepted austerity (rationing and shortages), state controls and restrictions on personal freedoms as essential to achieve victory over the enemy. The analogy does not bear scrutiny as the text progressively informs us. Make no mistake however the green economy is about austerity, state control and restriction of personal freedoms. This is a must read for those with open minds. I take a star away for some degree of poor readability.

This book is well written, concise and good value for money. It should be required reading for all those politicians who make decisions without having thought through the consequences of those decisions. They have wasted billions over the years and are still doing it today.
