    Leading-edge Thought on Sustainable Development

    No more crucial task faces today's world than addressing the twin threats of dwindling natural resources and ongoing climate change. Among the thornier problems global planners must solve along the way to averting these looming crises, however, is how to reverse the expansion of society's carbon footprint while still providing for continual growth in the human population and its need for quality housing, clean water, adequate food supplies, and access to the technologies on which quality of life depends.

    Klaus Daniels and Ralph E. Hammann have stepped into this formidable gap with the publication of Energy Design for Tomorrow (Energy Design für morgen). Daniels-holder of the chair in design and building technology at Darmstadt Technical University-and Hammann-professor of design and sustainable building systems at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign-have provided the beginnings of a blueprint for sustainable development that considers not only surviving, but thriving in an age when eco-friendly development has gone beyond being "a good idea" to becoming mandatory for continued human existence.

    With over 500 images, diagrams, charts, and tables; a wealth of innovative and provocative information; and, best of all, an array of sustainable, actionable alternatives for meeting future energy needs; Energy Design for Tomorrow can serve as a primer for those, like me, who are simultaneously anxious about the planet's future and frustrated by not knowing better options. Not only do Daniels and Hammann show us the problem; they show us ways to begin solving it. Anyone who is seriously interested in building a sustainable, environmentally viable future for our children and grandchildren should read Energy Design for Tomorrow.
