“Energy Alternatives, Surveying the Territory”

Energy_AlternativesThis report from the organization Corner House explores the question “What’s the alternative to current energy systems?” in a context of a growing climate crisis and increasing uncertainty over the future of fossil fuels. In energy policy today, the main conflict is among the different proposed alternatives themselves. Figuring out what the assumptions and audiences of the various alternatives are is half the work of assessing where a democratic and survivable energy future might lie. The point of this report is not to simplify the debate over energy alternatives, but to clarify how complex it is. If the need for action is urgent, then so is the need for an understanding capable of making that action effective. See full report at:–%20SURVEYING%20THE%20TERRITORY.pdf
