Possible extinction events are around the corner and we need technology and a greater understanding of energy to overcome extinction. But fortunately, just around the corner too, will be the greatest revolution ever for humanity, where energy will become free and opportunities will open up everywhere. Which will come first – solving our energy woes or the death of our humanity? We are now in a race against time to hit the start line of an Energy Revolution – a race against one possible outcome where Earth chokes to death on pollution versus getting to the Energy Revolution and repairing the pollution we have created. And will humankind evolve? To survive we must evolve towards transhumanism simply to overcome the follies of our own doing.

From a fat 126kg, I am now an Ironman! Just like my journey towards financial freedom, my goal of getting healthy was not without its fair share of pitfalls. Through it all, as trite as it may sound, determination and goal-setting played a lead role in my success and they continue to assist me in my daily life. One of the reasons for this book is to address all the different emotions and thinking processes that took me through the several stages to getting healthy. I spent a lot of time in introspection, thinking about it, convincing myself; it took months, if not years. Fact is, I have been in the bottom rungs financially and in the extremely unhealthy zone physically. With a few tweaks and fine-tuning of priorities, I was able to achieve what is truly important to me in life. So, I strongly urge you to pull yourself out of the rung or zone that you are unhappy to be stuck in – be it fitness, finance or family. Updated 2016

Energy: Engine of Evolution describes the importance of energy in the evolution of nature and culture on Earth. The book presents a compact history of energy for the creation of a sound basis for understanding the possible futures of the energy industry. It also brings a fresh element into the discussion on sustainable development. This scientific monograph consists of two parts. Part I is composed of five chapters with details on the history of planet Earth along the tracks left by energy. These five chapters correspond with the five successive energy revolutions. Energy revolution marks the boundaries between energy periods, and an energy period is characterized by an ecologically dominant energy regime. Part II is comprised of two chapters and an appendix. The first chapter describes a model called ""Staircase of Energy Regimes"" for the role of energy in the evolution of life. The second chapter then applies the Staircase model in exploring the pathways to a more sustainable future. This book will be of value to anyone interested in a ""sustainable future of system Earth"".

New York Times Bestseller A Summer Reading Pick for President Barack Obama, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg From a renowned historian comes a groundbreaking narrative of humanity’s creation and evolution—a #1 international bestseller—that explores the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be “human.” One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one—homo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us? Most books about the history of humanity pursue either a historical or a biological approach, but Dr. Yuval Noah Harari breaks the mold with this highly original book that begins about 70,000 years ago with the appearance of modern cognition. From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, Sapiens integrates history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas. Dr. Harari also compels us to look ahead, because over the last few decades humans have begun to bend laws of natural selection that have governed life for the past four billion years. We are acquiring the ability to design not only the world around us, but also ourselves. Where is this leading us, and what do we want to become? Featuring 27 photographs, 6 maps, and 25 illustrations/diagrams, this provocative and insightful work is sure to spark debate and is essential reading for aficionados of Jared Diamond, James Gleick, Matt Ridley, Robert Wright, and Sharon Moalem.

Unravelling the intricate relationship between economic development and energy consumption, this book proposes an innovative framework for the empirical investigation of the link between the economy and natural resources. It proposes a novel set of indicators to shed light on those aspects of the economic process and development that determine their requirements in terms of natural resources. Employing updated databases, this book presents tables and diagrams to compare the conventional and the new estimates of the linkage between energy and economic development (Energy Intensity) throughout the world, over the last 100 years. Whereas estimates based on the established framework for evaluating the link between energy resources and the economy indicate a strong decoupling trend, the new indicators follow substantially different paths which suggest a strong coupling between economic growth and energy use. These differences -which call into question the prevailing opinion of decoupling- are fundamental for the prospects of sustainability. This book provides a valuable resource for economists, energy and environmental analysts, natural resource managers and policy makers. It is also intended for students of ecological economics, sustainability studies, natural resource and energy economics.

In this stunningly original book, Richard Wrangham argues that it was cooking that caused the extraordinary transformation of our ancestors from apelike beings to Homo erectus. At the heart of Catching Fire lies an explosive new idea: the habit of eating cooked rather than raw food permitted the digestive tract to shrink and the human brain to grow, helped structure human society, and created the male-female division of labour. As our ancestors adapted to using fire, humans emerged as "the cooking apes". Covering everything from food-labelling and overweight pets to raw-food faddists, Catching Fire offers a startlingly original argument about how we came to be the social, intelligent, and sexual species we are today. "This notion is surprising, fresh and, in the hands of Richard Wrangham, utterly persuasive ... Big, new ideas do not come along often in evolution these days, but this is one." -Matt Ridley, author of Genome
