This book is simply not good science, nor is it an honest review of the good science being done in this field.

Please read rebuttals from people actually doing work in climate science:

Koonin uses stale data, misinterprets it, and blows the significance of the misinterpreted data out of proportion.

In the words of Wolfgang Pauli, the arguments in this book are "not even wrong."

Three companies, Sonnen, Swell Energy, and OhmConnect all stand on the leading edge of a new, promising trend in electrical power grids: VPPs.

This article is one in a series investigating the importance of modernizing and decarbonizing the electric grid.

If you want to understand the issue in context, see the article Grid Modernization; for cutting-edge experts’ take on the topic, see the article Here Is How To Create A Clean, Resilient Electrical…
