From the Author
Faced with global crises on all sides, national leaders and policymakers are either lost in denial or groping blindly for solutions. Will they desperately attempt to merely manage problems like global warming, pollution, and resource wars, or will they overturn the old order in favor of a new world paradigm that actually solves these problems and promises a better life for all?
Those policymakers who sound the alarm over these issues and declare sweeping goals like energy independence and drastic cuts in greenhouse gas emissions are hailed for their bold vision, yet none of them have offered a viable plan to reach those goals. But wishing will not make it so. We need real solutions, and we need them now.
Prescription for the Planet provides a roadmap to the post-scarcity era. It explains in clear and straightforward prose how three little-known technologies can be employed in a wondrous synergy to neutralize many of the most pressing dilemmas of our time. And unlike those who warn how painful their partial remedies will be, the way forward will not only be painless but will result in an improvement in the standard of living for everyone on the planet. From limitless and economical clean energy supplies to cheap zero-emission fuel for vehicles to recycling solutions that recover virtually everything without any extra effort on the part of individuals, Prescription for the Planet points the way to a future of almost unbelievable possibility. This is a call to transform the planet through a global energy and environmental revolution. You are cordially invited to participate.
