Reviews

“Sovacool writes with the authority of an expert, has amassed an impressive list of references, and makes his points quantitatively with numerous graphs and tables. … Overall, Sovacool has presented his readers … with well-documented ethical challenges stemming from our prodigious energy consumption. Earth would be a better place for all its species if we adhered to Sovacool’s eight principles, and his well-documented case studies point the way.” (Richard Wolfson, Technology and Culture, Vol. 56, April, 2015
