Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution–and How It Can Renew America.
Friedman, Thomas L. author.
Hot, Flat and Crowded is a new book in the library by Three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Thomas Friedman. He mapped the level economic playing field created by digital technology and global free-market capitalism in The World Is Flat in 2005. He now adds two crucial elements to his analysis of the state of the world: climate change and the population explosion. Booklist says Friedman is lashing in his critique of America’s failure to face energy and climate realities. Fluent in business, politics, and science, Friedman cogently explains the complex challenges we face, reminds us of our adaptability, and defines environmentalism as the key to peace and democracy. Expect to hear a lot about this book.
