Best Energy & Environmental Books
I believe the world cannot carry on as it is with existing environmental and energy usage policies,
Unfortunately the politicians are dodging or delaying the difficult decisions, binging closer a serious time of reckoning.
Inevitably the energy and environmental policies tie in with the economics policies and the insistent demand to increase GDP, even though it is a poor measure.
I have a separate category for the Best Economics Books although there is some overlap with this category.
You will only see the books I’ve rated at Four Stars (meaning good and well worth reading) and Five Stars (excellent and very highly recommended). Reviews of lower rated books appear on Amazon.co.uk but I haven’t brought the reviews across to my own website.
If you read my reviews, you’ll see I try to explain why I like them but also to identify any weaknesses. My job as a reviewer is to help you to find the most appropriate books rather than to help sell more books.
On that note, if you do decide to buy, I’d appreciate it if you could click through to Amazon on my links as (hopefully) I’ll earn a small referral commission.
Some of these books can be very expensive so, if you’re happy with a hard back or paperback book, take a look at the second hand options on Amazon. Personally I only buy if the condition is described as “As New” or “Very Good” unless I’m really keen and forced to drop down to “Good”.
