Written by Australian renewable energy expert Mark Diesendorf, this new book tells you everything you might want to know about renewable energy. It gets down to some technical nitty-gritty in some chapters, but also makes an excellent case for the “great transition” towards renewable energy, and shows how it can be done. The old arguments used against renewable energy sources are refuted, and there is an interesting chapter on why nuclear power is not the answer. He looks at the politics and policies affecting climate change action, and gives some pointers to how people can overcome vested interests and push reluctant governments to take action. This is an important book, with information useful to both an Australian and international audience, and so relevant at a time when the Australian Government is trying to push back against renewable energy growth. It isn’t a light read, but I found it fascinating, and with a constructive focus on how to fight climate change. I borrowed my copy from Sunshine Coast Libraries, but it is also available for sale from CSIRO and UNSW.
