On the one hand there is the insecurity of relying on the world’s most unstable region – the Middle East – compounded by the imminence of peak oil, growing scarcity and mounting prices.

A Solar Manifesto

Solar ManifestoSecond Edition, published April 2005,  Earthscan/James & James,  272 pages. ISBN 1-90291-651-4.

Climate Change, pollution, deforestation, destruction of the ozone layer, poverty and the population explosion are all problems created or exacerbated by the use of conventional energy. Answers are now more urgently required than ever, and Hermann Scheer shows that this crisis may yet be reversed - but that this can only happen through a fundamental change in political and economic strategies, paving the way towards a global solar energy economy sustained by new social principles. This book champions the replacement of fossil and nuclear fuels with solar energy as a real solution to the threat to the environment and associated social consequences.
