The contributors to this volume offer a detailed, analytically based challenge to the mainstream paradigm. At global, national, and regional levels, careful analyses of practical energy options such as conservation, renewables, micropower, new urban design, and environmentally sensitive rural development underscore the availability of sustainable futures that make the energy brownfields and blackouts and global ecological threats (such as climate change) of mainstream strategy unnecessary.
