"Czech has given us a fine mix of economics and ecology, tempered with a lot of common sense."--Herman E. Daly, author of Valuing the Earth: Economics, Ecology, and Ethics"Czech's book occupies a unique niche by combining a critique of standard economics, a plea for a less excessive lifestyle, and extremely interesting insights from a wildlife biologist. Furthermore, Czech has written a popular book, doing a good job of maintaining an accessible style while presenting detailed information and documentation. A good book for students as well as for the general public, Shoveling Fuel will be more, not less, relevant in the years to come."--John M. Gowdy, co-author of Paradise for Sale: A Parable of Nature"Talk of economic sustainability is bogus if not based on ecological principles and environmental realities. Although Czech shows why in a hilarious fashion, this is a serious book about a serious topic. Czech's clarion call for a 'steady state revolution'--what it is and how to bring it about--offers the only hope for real sustainability. This is a fascinating and convincing read."--David L. Trauger, Senior Staff Biologist, U.S. Geological Survey Read More
