Unpublished endorsement

"Fossil fuel based economies have created a crisis of planetary warming and ecological change that threatens the future of our own species. It is not our energy demand that is causing the problems but the way we get that energy. Clarke's book is an urgent call for action to avert climate chaos and shows that we can transform energy supply to renewables without the ecological, economic and social chaos that will ensue if we fail to act. All who care about the impending fate of life on Earth should read this book and then demand serious political and corporate action."

Unpublished endorsement

"A formidable book which not only lays out the nature of the climate crisis, globally and in Canada, but gives us a blueprint for an alternative energy future. Every Canadian policy maker and politician should read this book!"
