Ten Technologies to Save the Planet
by Chris Goodall
Everyone agrees that we need to do something to slash global greenhouse emissions as well as try to use more green technologies. Unfortunately, with so much conflicting information circulating it is hard to know what we can really do to help. How do we actually achieve these goals?
In his fascinating new book, Chris Goodall gives profiles of ten different "must watch" technologies. He explains how they work and tells the stories about their inventors and how the technologies came to be. Some things that the book covers, like hybrid cars, are familiar to most readers. Others, like using algae to soak up carbon dioxide and produce fuel are less reported on. This is a cutting edge book on new greener technologies that is written in a way that a popular audience can understand.
Chris Goodall is a world leading expert on climate change solutions. He also actively maintains the blog Carbon Commentary: A critical appraisal of issues in the move to a low carbon economy. The mission of the blog is to not only report on new technologies, products and news in the low carbon movement, but also to give an honest commentary about the effectiveness of these news items.
