By: Fred Krupp (Author), Miriam Horn (Author)
In Earth: The Sequel, Fred Krupp, longtime president of Environmental Defense Fund, brings a stirring and hopeful call to arms: "We can solve global warming," And in doing so we will build the new industries, jobs, and fortunes of the twenty-first century.
In these pages the reader will encounter the bold innovators and investors who are reinventing energy and the ways we use it. Among them: a frontier impresario who keeps his ice hotel frozen all summer long with the energy of hot springs; a utility engineer who feeds smokestack gases from coal-fired plants to voracious algae, then turns them into fuel; and a tribe of Native Americans, for two thousand years fishermen in the roughest Pacific waters, who are now harvesting the fierce power of the waves themselves. These entrepreneurs are poised to remake the world's biggest business and save the planet – if America's political leaders give them a fair chance to compete.
