Description

It is easy to feel overwhelmed by the urgency of global climate change. But when author Guy Dauncey assembles the world's best solutions in one place, as he does in The Climate Challenge, a vision emerges of a sustainable energy revolution. He opens the door to a century of exciting change, characterized by renewable energy, sustainable farming, carbon-rich forestry, green cities, electric vehicles, high-speed trains, a blossoming of innovation, and a host of new "green collar" jobs.

The Climate Challenge draws on working solutions from around the world, and lays out the best actions for students and scientists, musicians and mayors, policy-makers and presidents, showing how it is possible to reduce our carbon footprint to almost zero by 2040. Each solution describes steps that are already being used in homes, schools, businesses, cities, and governments around the world-with full scientific references to help the reader dig deeper and push farther.

If you worry about climate change, whether you are an enquiring teenager, a concerned householder, a farmer, forester, business leader, city mayor, or global policy-maker, this book will help you join the movement to help restore the planet's climate and build a new green economy.

The Climate Challenge: 101 Solutions to Global Warming

This refreshingly different, practical manual for learning and teaching about climate change is clearly organized into two parts: 35 challenges and 101 solutions. Dauncey defines each concept with the inclusion of web links, insightful quotes, comprehensive charts, illustrations and proactive “action items.” Some climate challenges include black carbon, greenhouse gases, bioenergy and energy security. He provides a vision for earth’s future in forests, farms, atmosphere and economy. Solutions for individuals, communities, businesses, farmers, energy companies, the media, retail stores, industry, government and others are included. Creating publicly owned “smart grids” and “supergrids” are suggested.

Dauncey is the founder of the Solutions Project. He has authored 10 books.
