Beyond Carbon Neutral: How We Fix the Climate Crisis Now Kindle Edition
"Scientists are doing great work investigating climate change. Conversely, engineering efforts to find overall solutions are lacking. Dr. Goodman's excellent book addresses this critical gap and presents the first practical, integrated U.S. solution to global warming." Dick Hutchinson, PhD, author of People's Assessment of Global Warming
"This book covers all the pieces of responding to climate change very well, and I have a high regard for its accuracy. You will learn a lot reading it. The world certainly needs lots of timely help such as this." Eric Grimsrud, PhD, author of Thoughts of a Scientist, Citizen, and Grandpa on Climate Change
"Goodman's harrowing account of the dangers of climate change are story-like, but he never veers away from the dangers of inaction. However, he brilliantly reminds us that all is not lost, that there is hope for a better future." - Zev Burton, author of Two Fish in a Tank
"This interesting read from Samuel Goodman is a message in hope, that there is still time. A very different approach to understanding climate change, he helps us understand that we have all we need to preserve this planet for future generations. Read on to to be inspired to act." - Rahul Prakash, author of Unblocking Blockchain

About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
But this book isn't that.
There is some in the beginning as a call to action, but the bulk of the book include actions that can be taken now (as in using only technology available now) to sort the problems -- including exploring alternative sources of power for the power grid (and all the difficulties that are involved with each renewable source of energy), how to store power, how to capture carbon, what legislative policies will help, and what an individual can do.
In general, I found this book to be hopeful in that there is an actual way to fix this, and I appreciated how the author did not shy away from ANY solution, even if it had serious drawbacks - and he did mention what those were. (Talking about the algal bloom part. Almost had a stroke reading it, but appreciated the inclusion.)
As for the audience, hmm, there is a certain essay-ness about this book and its organization that makes me think this should be read by politicians or those interested in learning what policies to vote for. It is certainly readable and interesting (especially the exploration of different power sources), but there is a directness that might be too much for the casual reader -- that's not to say that I don't think people should read it, quite the contrary! As most people live on this earth and should have an interest in survival, we should all educate ourselves on how to do so. So I recommend to everyone.
However, in this work, Dr. Sam Goodman also lays out a viable strategy and action plan for how we can avert disaster. A must read and a book that I am going to recommend and give to family and friends this Christmas.
Sam also injects his great sense of humor about his childhood experiences that provides needed levity to such a serious topic.
Full disclosure - Sam is a former colleague of mine at a small Federal agency in Washington, DC.
But, he DID NOT solicit my review. He has no idea I wrote this.
But, in reading this book, I felt COMPELLED to give him accolades for such a well written and researched work and gift to us all. I hope that it motivates us to take what actions we personally can take and urge those in power to do the same...
