Let It Shine: The 6,000-Year Story of Solar Energy By John Perlin
2013 | 548 Pages | ISBN: 1608681327 | EPUB | 22 MB
Unprecedented gas prices, heat waves and droughts, climate change, Solyndra - all make "alternative" sources of energy contemporary areas of activism, controversy, lobbying, and legislation. Yet few know that the ancient Chinese, Greeks, and Romans used solar energy in their architecture; that Galileo and da Vinci both planned uses for the power of the sun; and that by 1918, there were more than 4,000 solar water heaters in California. The history of solar architecture and energy technologies gives readers an epiphany-producing sense of its future. Detailing a realistic alternative to fossil fuels, in illustrations the New York Times called "especially fine," and prose Library Journal termed "highly readable," Let It Shine shows that there is nothing - and plenty - new under the sun.
