Why We Need a Green Revolution--And How It Can Renew America Friedman's bestseller "The World Is Flat" has helped millions of readers to see globalization in a new way. Now the author brings a fresh outlook to the crises of destabilizing climate change and rising competition for energy. In vivid, entertaining chapters, Friedman makes it clear that the green revolution we need is like no revolution the world has seen. It will be the biggest innovation project in American history; it will be hard, not easy; and it will change everything from what you put into your car to what you see on your electricity bill. But the payoff for America will be more than just cleaner air. It will inspire Americans to something we haven't seen in a long time--nation-building in America--by summoning the intelligence, creativity, boldness, and concern for the common good that are our nation's greatest natural resources. Friedman explains how global warming, rapidly growing populations, and the astonishing expansion of the world's middle class through globalization have produced a planet that is "hot, flat, and crowded."
"Friedman is a three-time Pulitzer Prize winner for his work with The New York Times. He also authored the highly popular books, The Lexus and the Olive Tree (1999) and The World is Flat (2005). The world is getting hot, flat, and crowded because of the convergence of rapid population growth, exploding middle classes, and global warming. The first very readable half of the book makes a powerful case for immediate change. The latter part argues that the U.S. can maintain its moral and technological leadership toward a future habitable planet. This book has changed my thinking about the environment." --David Mays (Director of Learning Initiatives for The Mission Exchange)
