Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Turner (an energy risk management specialist for an international bank) and O'Connell (a consultant) explain how money can be channeled into the technology necessary to maintain existing standards of living, create economic growth, and prevent climate change. The book urges leaders in industry to take the initiative on environmental issues, especially global warming, and argues that they can make a bundle in the process. Chapters address the importance of this effort, America's (defeated) role in the process, renewable energy, nuclear energy, fuel cells, trading, greenhouse gases, and the Kyoto accords. Annotation c.
