It's been long, since I read a non-fiction which was so engrossing. I love how the narration incorporates the journey and the chemistry of the authors Sandeep and Savannah. I am bowled over by the understanding and sacrifices both of them made to make this book possible. The urgency of the matter is reflected in their sincerity towards telling these stories.
I must admit I was not aware of what the numbers say. As an Indian, I was grossly uninformed about the huge part that energy plays in our lives. When the authors probe us to ask ourselves about "what is energy", I realized how little we thought about our dependence on fuels of all kinds in how we work, how we travel and how we live.
I love the storytelling style where we are introduced to people who are at different ends of the spectrum in the domain of this problem. Jharkhand and Alberta seem like start contrasts but we see both angles to the problem of energy transition. This book gives me hope that there are climate change, renewable energy scientists who are tirelessly working on this problem. And I wish that businesses, governments and civil societies identify strategic steps and come together to solve a problem of this magnitude.
