Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Carbon dioxide emission and its relationship to global warming is the subject of a raging debate among scientists and world leaders. Federal and state governments have proposed three actions to decarbonize our economy: put a cap on carbon emissions, place revenue-neutral taxes on energy, and establish a renewable energy portfolio standard. Casten, an entrepreneur in the field of energy conversions for 20 years, offers another solution, a variant on the carbon-cap approach specifically targeting energy producers. The Fossil-Fuel Efficiency Standard (FFES) would eliminate all government subsidies on fossil fuels, deregulate the electric industry, and eliminate the barriers to efficiency embodied in environmental and regulatory laws. A built-in time line would give businesses time to adapt to the standard. Additionally, the FFES would promote research, thus driving down the price of renewable energies. This thoughtful work adds to the national debate. Recommended for large public and academic libraries.AEva Lautemann, DeKalb Coll. Lib., Clarkston, GA

Format: Hardcover
Fantastic book that should be a must read for anyone involved in the global warming debate and/or policy making associated with the debate. Does a great job of showing why global warming is scary, and why companies that try to address it will be met not with penalties, but with phenomenal business opportunities.
