Great book for everyone, not just environmentalist
The premise is this: green energy simply makes sense from just about every perspective. It won't completely replace non-renewables completely any time soon, but it should flourish side by side with them. Our energy needs are enormous, and this book shows how renewables have the potential to rise to meet them.
But there are problems. Green energy has a strong stigma, and is often associated with crazy environmentalists or left wing liberals. Green energy is for everyone though, and it simply makes sense, economically, environmentally, and sustainability-wise. Brian Keane makes the argument that we need to change the image and advertise green energy technologies and companies with the same vigor and budget that Coca Cola or Nike or McDonald's advertises. Once green energy becomes more mainstream, it can really rise to fill the great potential that it has.
I purchased this from Audible, and it should be noted that the recording is extremely rough with apparently no editing. The author narrates his own book, so the passion for the subject carries through, but every time he makes a reading mistake, he goes back to the beginning of the sentence and re-reads it. This is pretty low quality for what ought to be a professional recording.
unedited, rough, passionate
