People shouldn't feel guilty about your carbon footprint. The way to deal with global warming is to build a bigger, better energy supply – not to change behaviour at home and in the car. People are not addicted to energy, and there's still time to fix global warming without downgrading lifestyles.
Energise! shifts debate on energy/climate away from the usual opponents – climate sceptics vs those who focus on consumer demand and the consumer creation of CO2. Instead, it begins from the world’s need for much more cheap and clean energy. Energise! also focuses on the sociology of energy, analysing concepts such as consumer greed, ‘addiction’ to oil, uncertainty in climate science, the Precautionary Principle and resource wars.
