Hot, Flat and Crowded

Hot, Flat and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution and How It Can Renew America
by Thomas L. Friedman [363.738 Fri]

Friedman takes on the daunting challenge of global warming, providing readers with a comprehensive breakdown of all the "hot-button" issues. He makes a compelling argument that the U.S. must lead the world in confronting and combating this challenge by means of economic and technological innovation. Friedman presents the science in a very readable fashion, and his overall optimism is compelling. -- recommended by Jim W. - Gere Branch Library
