Peak Oil Book Review: Homeowner's Guide to Energy Independence

Website: MrEnergyCzar.com This is my Peak Oil Book Review for the book, "The Homeowner's Guide to Energy Independence". Alternative power sources for the average American. I'm giving this book three stars. It is very simplistic but it's great for the masses. If everyone did two percent of what they recommend in this book we'd probably shut down one hundred power plants. It wouldn't solve the problem, it would just delay the inevitable. It gave realistic methods to power down and to reduce your home's reliance on fossil fuels. I had implemented a few of these things anyway, it's nice to hear some things I may not have thought of in terms of alternative means. It covered the basics, more of a broad view in terms of solar options, wind, geothermal and of course conservation or negawatts. Using wood, even micro hydro systems for the home and biodiesel for transportation. It's a good book if you're thinking overall of how do I power down and reduce your fossil fuel reliance, I'm not comfortable with the unpredictability of fossil fuel prices. It's a great book, I give it three stars.
