    I’m reading a book called “alternative energy demystified” – it’s for beginners apparently, but … (p7)

    “Disadvantages of wood burning:

    * Wood stoves can be dangerous: Before installing one, read the instruction manual. You should wear safety glasses and completely cover yourself (including your hands) with fireproof clothing when working around an active wood stove”.

    * The fire requires constant attention”

    etc etc. It then goes on to hydro: (P197)

    “Whenever energy is taken from a river by a hydroelectric facility, that energy is not available for use in any form further downstream”.

    Um… it’s going back to the library today!



    Who is the Author please ?




    4 seconds pasting the title into Google shows:

    A McGraw Hill / Stan Gibilisco production.


    I think we all know this book is bull—- (fill in the blanks) – neither of the above statements have any truth in them. :)
