For Nonfiction Monday -- "Energy island: how one community harnessed the wind and changed their world" by Allan Drummond.
Drummond's first person narrator describes how the small Danish island of Samso achieved energy independence and became known as Energy Island. Drummond's description of an ordinary place with ordinary people going about their ordinary lives emphasizes the fact that energy efficiency is within the reach of anyone willing to make the effort and highlights the results that can be achieved when individuals and communities work together for a common goal. Sidebars define and elaborate on terms such as Nonrenewable Energy and Energy Independence.
