Product Description


It is easy to feel overwhelmed by the urgency of global climate change. But when author Guy Dauncey assembles the world's best solutions in one place, as he does in The Climate Challenge, a vision emerges of a sustainable energy revolution. He opens the door to a century of exciting change, characterized by renewable energy, sustainable farming, carbon-rich forestry, green cities, electric vehicles, high-speed trains, a blossoming of innovation, and a host of new "green collar" jobs.

The Climate Challenge draws on working solutions from around the world, and lays out the best actions for students and scientists, musicians and mayors, policy-makers and presidents, showing how it is possible to reduce our carbon footprint to almost zero by 2040. Each solution describes steps that are already being used in homes, schools, businesses, cities, and governments around the world - with full scientific references to help the reader dig deeper and push farther.

If you worry about climate change, whether you are an enquiring teenager, a concerned householder, a farmer, forester, business leader, city mayor, or global policy-maker, this book will help you join the movement to help restore the planet's climate and build a new green economy.

Guy Dauncey is an author, speaker, and futurist who is President of the BC Sustainable Energy Association, and founder of the Solutions Project. He has authored or co-authored nine books, including the award-winning Stormy Weather, Enough Blood Shed, Cancer, and Building an Ark.

HASH(0x9d4504c8) out of 5 stars BUY IT!! It's an amazing resource. We CAN stop global warming!! July 18 2010
By LouiseSStonington - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a superb reference book about the Climate.
Its section on climate science is easy to read, with clear explanations to all your questions, and websites for additional information.
Most of the book is stories about people helping the Earth. Pick a page or two, whatever your interest - art, radio, architecture, gardening, recycling, aviation, forests, solar energy, politics, building, school etc etc, and read about what other people are doing. You will find weblinks to people and organizations that are reducing carbon emissions. Learn what they tried, how they succeeded,and what else can be done.
"Many of us can visualize a peaceful, sustainable climate-friendly world, but it's not happening as fast as it needs to. Something more is needed. We need a movement that unites people all over the world."
Be a part of the solution. Buy this book for yourself and for everyone you know.
Thank you for caring.

HASH(0x9d450840) out of 5 stars Put a positive view on an important and vital situation. Jan. 23 2013
By Br. Curt - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Guy Dauncey lays out the situation in the first couple of chapters. It seems very intimidating of a challange and could cause one to feel a little helpless. However, the rest of the book is full of what other folks living within small towns and large cities are doing to help off-set their carbon footprints. When viewed in small steps it starts to look more readily accomplishable. Very good book. Informative and, at times, entertaining.
