Hot, Flat, and Crowded
Why We Need a Green Revolution - And How It Can Renew America
About the Summary
The world has a problem. It is getting hot, flat, and crowded. That is, global warming, the stunning rise of the middle class all over the world, and rapid population growth have converged in a way that could make our planet dangerously unstable. In just a few years it will be too late to fix things –– unless the United States steps up and takes the lead in a worldwide effort to replace our wasteful, inefficient energy practices with a strategy for clean energy, energy efficiency, and conservation that Freidman calls Code Green.
