[SANET-MG] which energy ?
ISIS Press Release 10/03/06
Announcing ISIS 2006 Energy Report
Mae-Wan Ho, Peter Bunyard, Peter Saunders, Elizabeth Bravo & Rhea Gala
This energy review began in the summer of 2005, when accelerating global
warming and soaring energy prices finally struck home to most of the
world’s political leaders that business as usual is no longer an option.
The challenge to find the right survival strategies has never been
greater; and we have to find them now. Time and energy resources are
both running out. Squander them on the wrong technologies and the
consequences will be catastrophic. Choose the right options and we can
mitigate global warming and thrive in a greener, cleaner post fossil
Global warming is accelerating and energy prices are soaring. We have to
find the right survival strategies, and we have to find them now. Time
and energy resources are both running out; squander them on the wrong
technologies and the consequences will be catastrophic, invest in the
right options and we can mitigate climate change and thrive in a post
fossil fuel world.
This report will help you make the right choices
among nuclear, biofuels, wind, solar, energy from wastes, and more…

Choosing the right options requires a critical understanding of the
science and technologies involved. We need to know how our energy
options affect the health of the planet and the human species, and
impact on other life necessities, above all, food security. We need to
know how the way we produce and distribute food affects energy use and
energy security. We also need to take account of the social, ethical,
economic and political consequences of our choices. And finally, we need
to question some of the most deeply held assumptions of the dominant
model of unlimited unsustainable growth based on competition and market
forces. Our Energy Report does all of that.
We concentrate on the energy options that are most immediately
available, the most promising and the most contentious. We address many
of the key issues tackled by the world’s governments in response to
climate change and the impending energy crisis, and others they have yet
to do. No country can act in isolation. The most important lesson of
global warming is that the ecological impacts of our energy consumption
in all forms cannot be outsourced with impunity, and the best way to
protect our own ecosystem may be to protect the integrity of far-flung
forests on the other side of the globe and enable people living there
and elsewhere to claim an equitable share of the resources.
Please make this Report widely available to policy-makers and the public
across the world to help people everywhere make the transition to a
greener, cleaner, healthier, wealthier and more fulfilling life without
