TV/Radio/Speaking

Invite Ozzie Zehner to give a talk
at your university, bookstore, or

“Zehner is especially good at un-
tangling sloppy thinking.”

—David Owen, The New Yorker

“An academic who is causing
shockwaves”

 —The Sunday Times

“In clear prose, Zehner lays out
the problems associated even with
so-called “green” energy, argues
that we should shift the focus from
finding more energy to using less,
and – this is the best part – actually
proposes some solutions as to how
to make that happen.”

—Ellen Cushing, East Bay Express
