The world needs to turn away from fossil fuels and use clean, renewable sources of energy as soon as we can. Failure to do so will cause catastrophic climate damage sooner than you might think, leading to loss of biodiversity and economic and political instability. But all is not lost! We still have time to save the planet without resorting to 'miracle' technologies. We need to wave goodbye to outdated technologies, such as natural gas and carbon capture, and repurpose the technologies that we already have at our disposal. We can use existing technologies to harness, store, and transmit energy from wind, water, and solar sources to ensure reliable electricity, heat supplies, and energy security. Find out what you can do to improve the health, climate, and economic state of our planet. Together, we can solve the climate crisis, eliminate air pollution and safely secure energy supplies for everyone.
“Pollution, climate catastrophe, and energy security can all be addressed with his simple plan...This book is a godsend.”
– Mark Ruffalo
“Many people believe or fear that we can’t solve the climate crisis, because we just don’t have the technologies in hand to do so. This book should lay that fear to rest, once and for all.”
– Naomi Oreskes, co-author of The Big Myth
“…read energy systems expert Mark Jacobson’s amazing new book…and be informed and engaged to help tackle the defining challenge of our time.”
– Michael Mann, author of The New Climate War
