Description

As fossil fuel prices rise, oil insecurity deepens, and concerns about climate change cast a shadow over the future of coal, a new energy economy is emerging. Wind, solar, and geothermal energy are replacing oil, coal, and natural gas, at a pace and on a scale we could not have imagined even a year ago. For the first time since the Industrial Revolution, we have begun investing in energy sources that can last forever. Plan B 4.0 explores both the nature of this transition to a new energy economy and how it will affect our daily lives.show more

Review quote

"A great blueprint for combating climate change." -- Bryan Walsh - Time "Lester Brown is one of the pioneers and heroes of global environmentalism. If the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize had been extended to a third recipient, the logical candidate would have been Lester Brown." -- E. O. Wilson "Lester Brown tells us how to build a more just world and save the planet... in a practical, straightforward way. We should all heed his advice." -- Former President Bill Clinton "In this impressively researched manifesto for change, Brown bluntly sets out the challenges and offers an achievable road map for solving the climate change crisis." -- The Guardian "A great book which should wake up humankind!" -- Klaus Schwab, World Economic Forum "Brown gives concise, but very informative, summaries of what he regards as the key issues facing civilization as a consequence of the stress we put on our environment... a valuable contribution to the ongoing debate." -- The Ecologistshow more
