9780230605442: Green: Your Place in the New Energy Revolution

Green illustrates and sheds new light on the gamut of issues associated with renewable energy, a topic whose importance increases exponentially with every temperature record-setting year. Jane and Michael Hoffman use their years of experience to explain the technological and economic future of this ecologically significant issue. They incisively explain its politics: what countries are doing right now and, most importantly, what the U.S. should be doing. Green will cut through the hype and polemics surrounding ecologically friendly technologies and present the unvarnished truth. It will guide the reader through the misinformation and confusion over global warming, and demonstrate the degree to which renewable energy can be part of the solution.

About the Author:

Jane Hoffman is a nationally renowned policy expert on consumer issues and domestic policy and was a Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor for New York. She ran the Department of Consumer Affairs during the Giuliani administration, and has also worked as a Senior Producer at CNN. Michael Hoffman is Managing Director of Riverstone Holdings, LLC, where he manages the world's largest renewable energy fund. He specializes in global investments in renewable energy and power enterprises. They live in New York City.

From Publishers Weekly:

According to the authors of this optimistic assessment of the global energy crisis, the current gluttonous dependence on nonrenewable fossil fuels is merely an ecologically ruinous interlude between energy ages. In the authors' decidedly long view, mankind survived for centuries without much need for oil, coal and natural gas—although humans were using all three in limited fashion as early as 3000 B.C., petroleum was first pumped from a well in Pennsylvania only in 1859—and can do so again. The Hoffmans argue that as technology improves efficiencies, solar fields, wind farms, geothermal drilling and biomass crops will replace fossil fuels as energy sources, a process driven as much by economic self-interest as by pressure for a more sane environmental future. They dismiss both the hydrogen economy and corn-based ethanol as unfeasible energy sources, but suggest that an African weed, jatropha, has the potential to turn that poverty-stricken continent into the Saudi Arabia of biofuel. Accessible and surprisingly entertaining, this informed overview of available paths to relatively pollution-free energy resources is a level-headed primer on the world to come. (July)
