From Kirkus Reviews
“Rirdan’s prescriptive nonfiction debut provides suggestions to ensure the planet’s continued environmental health. The author sets forth his plan for salvation, ambitiously addressing every major threat to the environment: climate change, deforestation, overfishing, wetlands drainage and excess consumption. His scope is broader than most environmentalist writers, including Al Gore in his seminal book on climate change....Rirdan’s thorough, readable treatment of the questions society must confront makes this book an essential addition to any environmentalist’s reading list.”
“Books and websites may tout “ten easy ways to save the planet”....The way to avoid the catastrophe that confronts us is not going to be easy or simple, but urgently imperative. For all who care about the future for our children and our species, Rirdan’s book must be read so we can follow his recommendations. We have no choice and time is terrifyingly short.” —David Suzuki, Ph.D., award-winning scientist and environmentalist author
“This book is filled with interesting ideas—it will get you thinking in new directions!” —Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth, founder of 350.org
“The Blueprint is an epic analysis of the world perched on the cliff of catastrophe. Rirdan’s first stab is brilliant, innovative, and radical. Don’t dismiss it as utopian. Join the conversation. Prove that homo sapiens is not a failed species. Secure the future.” —Niels Schonbeck, Professor of Chemistry at Metropolitan State University of Denver
