Description
In KICK THE FOSSIL FUEL HABIT, author Tom Rand, (engineer, Cleantech authority, venture capitalist, pragmatic entrepreneur and philosopher) doesn’t provide a "three-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 ten technologies that together can bring a clean future, free of fossil fuels, Tom 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 hardheaded engineering and business perspective. Beautiful color photographs bring the text to life.It is this generation’s job to save the world we know for the next. KICK THE FOSSIL FUEL HABIT shows us how.
