Ohne heisse Luft

Aimed specifically at Germany and Europe today, the authors were inspired by David Mackay’s approach in Sustainable energy without the hot air (2009). Though the laws of physics have remained the same, our knowl­edge of renewable energy sources has improved. From their experience of Energiewende and using clear, practical examples, they give us the facts so we can understand and contribute to the ongo­ing debate on renewable energy.

Nutt's insights on the UK drug scene are shared on the podcast "On Drugs" by comedian Jacob Hawley. You can listen to it here:
