Power Shift: From Fossil Energy to Dynamic Solar Power by Robert Arthur Stayton is a very relevant book in today’s world. Power Shift presents a historical perspective on traditional energy sources and the use of fossil fuels and carbons and their effects. It talks about how our ancestors used energy as well as some of the newer sources such as nuclear, solar, wind, etc. The book then discusses the various ways in which we can harness solar energy, which is not only an unlimited source of energy, but is clean and environment-friendly as well. Power Shift also talks about the challenges facing us as we struggle to discover and harness new energy sources in a way that is long-term and sustainable. Included in the book are real-life practical tips and ideas on ways to use solar energy and apply it in everyday use.
Power Shift: From Fossil Energy to Dynamic Solar Power by Robert Arthur Stayton is an extremely useful and well-written book. Although solar energy has been around for a while, Power Shift truly makes a great case for why it is the solution of the future, along with great practical ideas on ways in which to harness it. I liked the detailed diagrams and descriptions of how to put solar power to use in the form of solar panels, etc. The writing is clear, to-the-point, and it is obvious that Robert Stayton knows what he is talking about and is extremely knowledgeable in his field. All in all, a great, useful read for everyone as we move forward towards new, renewable, clean energy sources.
