An Optimistic Look at the Changing World of Energy

Published: Wednesday, 11/02/2005 12:00 am EST

From the duo that brought us Shift magazine, Fueling the Future is a good primer for those unversed in the changing world of energy. Each chapter is penned by a different writer presenting a different aspect of the debate -- everything from the future of hydrogen, wind and solar energy to ultra-efficient architecture and carbon sequestration. There is a deliberate effort to discuss Canada's place in this debate -- with the most memorable contributions from Geoffrey Ballard, Thomas Homer-Dixon, Hunter Lovins and Jeremy Rifkin. Flooded with optimism, the book rallies your imagination and gets the reader excited about the low-carbon future -- possibly at the cost of painting an accurate reality. ­ Jon Lomow
