The Conundrum : How Trying to Save the Planet is Making Our Climate Problems Worse Hardback

Description

Hybrid cars, fast trains, energy-efficient light bulbs, solar panels, carbon offsets...Forget everything you ever thought you knew about living green. The Conundrum is a mind-changing manifesto about the environment, efficiency and the real path to sustainability.

As Owen argues, we should not be waiting for some genius to invent our way out of the energy crisis we're in.

We already have all the technology and knowledge we need to live sustainably.

But will we do it? That is the conundrum. In this gripping book, David Owen takes you through the history of energy and explains the contradictions inherent in our quest for eco efficiency.

The truth is, the more we try to save the planet, the more we trash it.

Packed with interesting anecdotes, elegantly argued, The Conundrum will change the way you look at the world.

For good.
