A user's guide to the solar revolution - and why we must all get on board before it is too late.

Our civilisation stands on the brink of catastrophe. Our thirst for energy has led to threats from global warming, nuclear disaster and conflict in oil-rich countries.
We are running out of options.

Solar power, Keith Barnham argues, is the answer. In this eye-opening book, he shows how a solar revolution is developing based on one of Einstein's lesser known discoveries, one that gave us laptop computers and mobile phones.

An accessible guide to renewable technology and a hard-hitting critique of the arguments of solar sceptics, THE BURNING ANSWER outlines a future in which the fuel for electric cars will be generated on our rooftops. It is, above all, an impassioned call to arms to join the solar revolution before it's too late.
