"If climate change is the greatest public health threat of our century, then renewable energy is an enormous public health opportunity. Clean power sources are also healthy power sources-and as this book shows, they can also be beautiful, inspiring, and economical. In Good Energy, Jared Green has given us not only a joyous read, but also a guide to the future of global health."
- Howard Frumkin, MD, DrPH, former director of the National Center for Environmental Health at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
