Hot, Flat, and Crowded
Why We Need a Green Revolution - And How it Can Renew America
By Thomas L. Friedman
Friedman's book proposes a national strategy of "Geo-Greenism" to "make America healthier, richer, more innovative, more productive, and more secure."
He shows how 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, and the flattening of the world by the Internet have combined to bring climate and energy issues to Main Street, as the grandchildren of the Greatest Generation, step up to lead as "the Greenest Generation."
He calls for Americans to redefine ourselves and lead the charge of energy technologies, with great hope for the future.
