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.

This author comes across as arrogant, sneering and denigrating of other people, ideas and technologies. This makes the book very difficult to read. Read morePublished on October 24, 2010 by Olive
This book is definitely an eye opener. It goes to some lengths that I don't think are likely to come to fruition (namely GREAT and the Boron cars), but the details about the IFR... Read morePublished on April 30, 2010 by W. Ragsdill
