Description: Excessive burning of oil, gas, and coal is raising our planet's thermostat to unacceptable levels -- a problem which has already resulted in increased natural catastrophes: storms, floods, droughts, and fires. Yet big oil companies have repeatedly hijacked efforts to slow global carbon emissions. THE CARBON WAR is a major call-to-arms for the safety of our planet. Throughout the last decade, Jeremy Leggett, a distinguished scientist at Oxford University and former director for Greenpeace, has worked doggedly to alert human kind to the threat of ecological catastrophe. With the grace of a novelist and the precision of a scientist, Leggett recounts his maddening interactions with scientific councils, international governmental meetings, and business leaders. Still, despite the government's backpedaling on eco-promises, the media's laziness, and fossil fuel company rhetoric, the transition to solar energy is coming, he argues. THE CARBON WAR is a riveting read and a critical contribution to the fight for sustainable energy.
