THIS IS A 2009 BOOK BY A PHYSICS ACADEMIC PERSON; IN IT HE PRESENTS A TON OF REALLY WELL PRESENTED QUANTITATIVE DATA/ANALYSES; HE ATTEMPTS AND I BELIEVE SUCCEEDS, IN MAKING BIG COMPLEX NUMBERS USEFUL – E.G. HOW MANY KILOWATT HOURS OF ENERGY PER DAY PER CAPITA ARE CURRENTLY CONSUMED – INCLUDING TRANSPORTATION AND HEATING? AND, WHAT IS THE POTENTIAL PRODUCTION BY ALL THE LIKELY RENEWABLES.]
[I have verified some of his critical numbers against brand-new analyses by PSE Healthy Energy, and they compare well – suggesting converging accuracy.] –Stan Scobie, Binghamton, NY, 607-669-4683
