5.0 out of 5 stars Timely follow-on to Natural Capitalism, August 17, 2011
This review is from: Climate Capitalism: Capitalism in the Age of Climate Change (Hardcover)
I have finished reading and enjoying Climate Capitalism the follow-on to Natural Capitalism which greatly changed our company when we read it back in 2000. Due to what must be Hunter Lovins' writing style, which is apparent in both books, the book is easy to read despite being dense with information. The book is a compendium of climate change concepts and is a source book of the latest efforts at conservation, mitigation of carbon dioxide release, renewable energy and adjustment to already occurring climate change. Like Natural Capitalism it strongly demonstrates the business model for change without relying on climate science. It does this across manufacturing, agriculture, shelter and transportation. The structure of the book was helpful in keeping the information organized. The final chapter, A Future That Works, is the most esoteric and the most interesting to me. It discusses the philosophical and economic underpinnings of the capitalist system and its interaction with the environment and human happiness. A high point of the chapter was the discussion of Adam Smith's last book: The Theory of Moral Sentiments. It would be hard to be or remain cynical after reading Climate Capitalism.
