    DescriptionAs 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.

    Review quote
    Praise for previous editions: "...Brown bluntly sets out the challenges and offers an achievable road map for solving the climate crisis." The Guardian on Plan B 3.0 "Brown is an effective Cassandra. His picture of climate-change-induced chaos is terrifying and convincing.." Andrew Simms, New Scientist on Plan B 2.0
