'Toke doesn't mince words. His title alone says it all. What's needed is not a transition from fossil fuels, as COP 28 meekly requested, but a revolution in how we procure, distribute, and use energy. But Toke boldly goes further, calling for a revolution in who gets to develop and own our renewable future. In doing so, he takes on the axis of evil, Reagan-Thatcherism, and their destructive cult of neoliberalism that has shackled renewable energy for decades to the benefit of fossil fuels and their minions.'

'The future of Humankind depends on the choices we make about future energy systems. Those choices will be ideologically-driven: will Western governments go on prioritising obscene corporate profits at the expense of genuine energy security, lower prices and radical decarbonisation? David Toke authoritatively demonstrates how insane that would be - and what brilliant alternatives are already available to us.'
