Change

Chapter


Abstract


  • It is simple, really. Our dependency on carbon fuels is jeopardizing our only planet home. To avert DISASTER, we must either switch to a more sustainable fuel source or find technological solutions to the environmental problems we have created. But who is this “we” and how can “they” effect the necessary changes? It cannot be done alone; no individual can pull off this miracle herself. It cannot even be done one country at a time. It will require a coordinated global effort, one that changes our very conception of change.
