Editorial Reviews

Review

“Smoothly edifying.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Warburg’s graceful, diverse, wide-ranging, and well-balanced storytelling...[is] a valuable service to a society rife with solar myths, many deliberately manufactured...An important and timely contribution to the public understanding of solar power.”
—Amory Lovins, Science

Harness the Sun eloquently details the role that solar can—and must—play in our clean-energy future.”
—Peter Lehner, executive director of the Natural Resources Defense Council

“Harness the Sun is an indispensable guide to the technologies that undergird an emerging solar revolution. It describes the businesses that will profit from it, the interests that will be disrupted by it, and the policies that could accelerate it. Phil Warburg does all this by wandering across the land, talking with workers and consumers and CEOs, and asking them exactly the questions that every intelligent, open-minded reader would want to have answered. If you are intrigued by solar energy in concept but think it is a just a futuristic option, read this book today.”
—Denis Hayes, national coordinator of the first Earth Day and former director of the Solar Energy Research Institute
 
“As an environmental scientist with more than thirty years’ experience, I applaud Philip Warburg for shining much-needed light on the renewable energy potential of contaminated lands. These sites can help expand our clean-energy capacity in places where industry has left a lot more than rust behind.”
—Deborah Sawyer, founder and CEO, Environmental Design International, Inc.

“Phil Warburg has invented a new literary genre: the clean energy travelogue. His trips to the places and characters behind the solar energy boom are brilliantly entertaining and informative. He has written the definitive guide to America’s solar transformation.”
—U.S. Rep. Henry A. Waxman (ret.), former chair, House Energy and Commerce Committee
