Energy Executive Book Choices 2008-2009 - One in English one in French _ Translation? _ Just ask.

My Energy Executive Book Choices 2008-2009.

Two very good back-ground books to read and to use. Both are easily accessible musts for the energ executive and most useful for the general public. Although one is in french -perhaps I can help.

1. Energy Basics - Energy Balance _ Production capacity (hard work and Jobs?) vs Consumption (Too easy for human and planetary good?)
Title Without Hot Air by David J.C. MacKay free online or buy the print edition.

2. Energy and Economy policy for "Human Economy is essentially about how mankind transforms limited natural resources to make usefuln desirable products and services." quoted from the authers of:"C'est maintenant, 3 ans pour sauver le monde," (trans_ Now is the time-3 years to save the World) by Jean-Mark Jancovici et Alain GrandJean in french.
