    1. Does exactly what it says on the tin. This book describes ten technologies that, when taken in combination, could help reduce the impact of climate change on the Earth. The technologies in question are: wind power, wave and current power, solar power, combined heat and power, super-insulated homes, electric cars, second-generation biofuels, carbon capture, biochar and sequestering carbon in soils and trees.There's a lot of interesting stuff here and the ways that the technologies can feed off an [...]


    2. I bought this book at my local Oxfam, before buying it I did a quick check of reviews to make sure I am indeed buying something interesting. What I forgot to check was the publishing date (which is something I always do especially with technology books) and I happy I didn't. If I had checked the date I wouldn't have bought it. This book was published in 2008 - a hundred years ago In technology years. I decided to give it a go anyway, because of the glorious reviews, and if it feels dated I can [...]


    3. How to stop global warming The geographical characteristics of an area dictate which renewable energy sources will work best. Because renewable energy is inherently, though predictably, intermittent, governments will need to build supplementary systems. Basically, no single technology will answer all of the world’s needs. However, a “portfolio” of technologies should do the trick. Businessman and climate change expert Chris Goodall describes 10 technologies in intricate detail, from the we [...]


    4. Not really new technologies, just ones that are getting more pressing to be developed quickly - after all Henry Ford knew cars could run on ethanol, and it was American prohibition that was a key factor in petrol becoming king of the roads. Interesting but the detail is only really of use for those trying to work out where to invest their ££s, the rest of us will have to wait for their success and concentrate on living a low carbon life - which incidentally is the more challenging of Chris Goo [...]



    5. Quite good. This Oxford-based author published a book and takes you on a look into, among other things, Tesla (my favorite!), rapidly emerging solar energy markets, the incredible energy potential of the UK's Pentland Firth, wind energy and its community uplifting potential, and the importance of building more energy efficient homes. Building a better box, as Garn might say. Good read and worth the 10 pounds.


    6. Explains some of the leading green technologies vying for primacy in the shift to cleaner energy sources. Easy to read, with a tone of hope that significant improvements can be made if governments, businesses and individuals are willing.
