Year In this brilliant, essential book, Thomas L. Friedman
speaks to America’s need for national renewal, and explains
how a green revolution is the only way to secure our
children’s future. Global warming, rapidly growing
populations, and the expansion of the world’s middle class
through globalization have not only produced a dangerously
unstable planet--one that is "hot, flat, and crowded"--they
have also diffused America's ability to compete on the world
stage.These same challenges, though, present the United
States with an opportunity to take the lead on a global
strategy for clean energy, energy efficiency, and
conservation, and in the process to renew its own economy.
The effort to create a Clean Energy System would be the
biggest innovation project in American history, changing
everything from what you put into your car to what you see
on your electric bill. And it could inspire Americans to
something we haven't seen in a long time--nation-building in
America--by summoning the intelligence, creativity, and
concern for the common good that are our greatest national
resources. Hot, Flat, and Crowded is classic Thomas L.
Friedman: fearless, incisive, and rich in surprising common
sense about the challenge--and the promise--of the future.
