Can we act quickly and wisely enough to prevent climate change – better called climate disruption – from destroying
human civilization? There is no greater issue facing humanity today.
This book provides everything people need to know in order to enter into serious discussions and make good decisions:
•The latest scientific information about the probable effects of the various types of climate disruption that threaten the very continuation of civilization.
•The reasons why the media and governments have failed miserably to rein in global warming, even though scientists
have been warning them for decades.
•The additional challenges to saving civilization – religious, moral, and economic.
•The amazing transformation of solar, wind, and other types of clean energy during the past few years, making the
transition from a fossil-fuel to a clean-energy economy possible; and the falsity of the various claims that fossil-fuel companies and their (hired) minions have made to belittle clean energy.
This book combines:
(1) the most extensive treatment of the causes and phenomena of climate change in combination with
(2) an extensive treatment of social obstacles and challenges (fossil-fuel funded denialism, media failure, political failure, and moral, religious, and economic challenges),
(3) the most extensive treatment of mobilization, and
(4) in discussing the needed transition from fossil-fuel energy to clean energy, it provides the most complete, most up-to-date treatment of the various kinds of clean energy, and how they could combine to provide 70% clean energy by 2035 and 100% before 2050 (both U.S. and worldwide).
