Environmentalist and entrepreneur Paul Hawken brings good news: not only is the world worth saving, but we can correct some of the worst effects of global warming. “Nothing new needs to be invented,” he writes by way of introduction. “The solutions are in place and in action.” The book that ensues is a searching, accessible tour of those solutions, describing one hundred techniques and practices- some well known; some you may have never heard of. They range from clean energy to educating girls in lower-income countries to land use practices that pull carbon out of the air.
An optimistic program for getting out of our current mess, well deserving of the broadest possible readership.
