I admit I’ve only just scanned the first couple of chapters so far. But this looks rather fun.
I was particularly taken with how he dealt with Jevons and his predictions of coal running out. I hadn’t realised that Jevons had been so wildly (and obviously) out in them.
He does get the economic arguments underlying what he’s talking about and for that alone it’s worth having a read I think.
Yes, I recently read it and it gives a very good overview of the politics behind this mass hysteria.
