With large-format color photography, ENERGY features the writings of more than thirty leading thinkers on energy, society, and ecology. Collectively, they illuminate the true costs, benefits, and limitations of all our energy options. Ultimately, the book offers not only a deep critique of the current system -- which is toxic to nature and people -- but also a hopeful vision for a new energy economy that fosters beauty and health, emphasizes community-scale generation, and supports durable economies, not incessant growth.
