About the Book:

Every energy sector out there wants a piece of the Peace River Valley, one of the last great wild places in North America. The oil industry wants it, the frackers, the solar, wind and nuclear industries.

Why?

As Charles Wilkinson paddles through the issues he engages hydro and natural gas energy executives, oil company reps, nuclear spokesmen, scientists, academics and activists. What starts to becomes clear is that the tricky business of energy supply and demand does not play out in isolation. It involves everyone who turns on a computer, starts a car, charges a cell phone. With clarity, even handedness and a good deal of wit, Charles Wilkinson connects all of us all to this sweeping energy issue that is rapidly transforming our world. The Peace River is in northwestern Canada, but it could be anywhere as the issues are universal. Peace Out was inspired by his award-winning documentary of the same name.
