From the Inside Flap
"A wonderful contribution that provides clear guidance on climate solutions -- 101 of them, in fact. Positive action is long overdue and this exciting road map will help move us forward." -- David Suzuki, scientist, author, and broadcaster
Humanity's most urgent challenge in the 21st century is likely to be global warming, and the possibility of irreversible climate change.
Stormy Weather deals head-on with this challenge. It is the only book to put simple and effective solutions to global warming in the hands of ordinary citizens, communities, businesses, power utilities, state governments, and national leaders.
In a clear and lively style, Stormy Weather explains how the planet got so over-heated, and then provides 101 solutions to help cool things down. These revolve around 12 core methods of reducing our use of fossil fuels and meeting our energy needs with solar, wind, tidal, and other renewable energies. Ten solutions each are suggested for individuals; citizens' organizations; cities; businesses; states and provinces; national governments; developing nations; and the world as a whole. Another five solutions are recommended specifically for auto companies, and fifteen for energy companies.
Meticulously researched, and including all the contacts necessary for further reading and action -- including hundreds of web sites -- Stormy Weather is the most up to date resource yet on global climate change, and the best guide to what we can all do to turn our collective fate around. It is essential reading for making it through the 21st century.
