Overview

Believe in climate change. Or don’t. It doesn’t matter. But you’d better understand this: the best route to rebuilding our economy, our cities, and our job markets, as well as assuring national security, is doing precisely what you would do if you were scared to death about climate change. Whether you’re the head of a household or the CEO of a multinational corporation, embracing efficiency, innovation, renewables, carbon markets, and new technologies is the smartest decision you can make. It is the most profitable, too. And, oh yes, you’ll help save the planet.

In Climate Capitalism, L. Hunter Lovins, the coauthor of the bestselling Natural Capitalism, and the sustainability expert Dr. Boyd Cohen prove that the future of capitalism in a recession-riddled, carbon-constrained world will be built on innovations that cutting-edge leaders are bringing to the market today. These companies are creating jobs and driving innovation.

In order survive into the 22nd century without completely destroying the planet's generous hospitality to our and other species, humankind must make some major changes. As has been stated by others, the planet will survive no matter what we do to it. But will human civilization survive as well? Those interested in pursuing the commonsense way forward will read this (and other) books on climate change, resource depletion, overpopulation and similar subjects. Fortunately, solutions are available to these challenges - as outlined in CLIMATE CAPITALISM - but first we must replace many of the idiots who are currently running the show.
