A New York Times Book Review Notable Book of the Year A Washington Post Best Book of the Year A Businessweek Best Business Book of the Year A Chicago Tribune Best Book of the 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.
