Endorsements by politicians

"Sustainable Energy - without the hot air" is engagingly written, packed with useful information, and refreshingly factual. Those, like me, of a non-technical bent will find the Technical Chapters at the end daunting; but we don't have to read them to get the message! Peter Ainsworth MP
Shadow Secretary of State for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs
So much uninformed rhetoric is thrown about on climate change and energy systems that there is an urgent need for an authoritative study setting out just what can and cannot realistically be done to achieve sustainable energy. This hugely important book fills that gap both technically and highly readably. It should be a 'must read' not only at home and in industry, but on each Government Minister's desk, and not just in the UK. Michael Meacher MP
Former Environment Minister
David MacKay's book sets the standard for all future debate on energy policy and climate change. His dedication to the facts and to rational argument is admirable in a field beset by propaganda and wishful thinking on all sides, and even if his conclusions eventually date, as all scientific work must, his approach will live on for a very long time. David Howarth MP
Shadow Solicitor General, Liberal Democrats
David MacKay sets out to dispel the half truths, distortions and nonsense which make up so much of what we're told about climate change and our energy needs. This book is readable, accessible and thorough. He cuts through unfounded opinion and takes us to facts and figures which speak for themselves. It's a useful guide for both layman and expert, and is available to download free. I heartily recommend it. Graham Stuart MP
Member for Beverley & Holderness
