This book is a clarion call to urgent change...but it presents the challenge in a simple call to action by laying out a 10-year plan.... We are all the agents of environment change. This book provides a look backward and a map forward.
After I read Part 4, I changed the way I move in the world.
Fueling Change presents the reader with a challenge essential to our current and future ways of living. Dell reinforces her point with the use of multiple easy to interpret charts and graphs. She uses storytelling combined with history, science, and technology in a compelling narrative that takes the reader to a provocative yet practical answer.
Fueling Change is an encyclopedia of facts and history that reads like a good novel.
Fueling Change tells the story of energy and people through time. This impressive collection of insights pulls together documents, artifacts and bountiful visuals to provide snapshots of how one city, Kansas City, has experienced transitions and variations in its energy supply. Dell's hard work in Fueling Change offers a promising example that others might consult to tell a city's story through the energy that makes it go.
The history...about the evolution of the country and Kansas City, specifically through the lens of energy, is the perfect way to equip us and inform our decisions to make the changes that are required if we care about the future of Kansas City and the planet.
What could be more timely than a new book about how fuel and energy have and do continue to shape our lives and our planet to this very minute? Twyla Dell has taken a complex subject--the history of a major city in America's heartland, and turned it into a saga of city change and expansion through the use of three fuels.
Fueling Change is a readable history of the impact of fuel transitions on the settlement of Kansas City and its growth as a trade center. I recommend that libraries (public and high school) provide access to the book.
The interesting illustrations and data charts kept me reading what turned out to be a very interesting history - thank you!"
