In this book the author and engineer, Cleantech authority, venture capitalist, pragmatic entrepreneur and philosopher, doesn't provide a 3 easy steps approach to fixing our dependence on fossil fuels. But he does show it's possible to do without them. By giving an in depth look at 10 technologies that together can bring a clean future, free of fossil fuels, he provides education and hope. This is a clarion call, a directive that we act quickly and collectively (governments, corporations and individuals) to provide future generations the opportunity to live in a sustainable world. Unique in being accessible to the general public, his message is not just important, but understandable and entertaining. His personal views and anecdotes are combined with a hard-headed engineering and business perspective. Beautiful photographs bring the text to life. It is this generation's job to save the world we know for the next. This book shows us how.

Finally, a positive, optimistic, and hopeful treatise on how we can save ourselves. Everyone should read this, and get going so that we can actually have a positive impact before the dreaded 2030.

Great ideas; how we can make simple changes everyday to reduce our use of fossil fuels.

What I like about the book is that there were ten things that I didn’t know that might help the planet a lot. There was nothing that I didn’t like about the book.
The book was about ten things that might help the planet such as solar, wind, Geothermal, Biofuels, Hydropower, the Ocean, Smart buildings, Transportation, Efficiency and Conservation, and The energy Internet. I would say this to people who are doing a project on things that might help the planet a lot.
