Climate Warrior: Climate Activism and Our Energy Future (Paperback)
What will you do for our children and grandchildren, knowing their future depends on it?
Climate Warrior weaves together the story of one person's response to this question: from awakening and education, to inspiration, advocacy, and action. This is the author's personal story of leaving the world of business to become a climate activist. He dedicated himself to doing what he could, with the talents at his command, working through his church, his Rotary Club, local non-profits, and national organizations. On this mission, he has upgraded multiple homes for energy efficiency, crawled under mobile homes and built storm window inserts to help low-income people. He has also founded a non-profit, written grant proposals, testified before utility commissions, written numerous newspaper op-eds and articles for other publications, and met with members of Congress.
Climate Warrior reaches beyond the confines of "memoir" and provides valuable information about the fundamental transformation of the energy system and economy now underway. It details the best ways to speed up this transformation through public policy and the personal actions of millions of people. Climate Warrior is written to help the non-expert develop an understanding of the energy transition ahead and learn how to join the army of climate warriors making that change happen fast enough to avert the climate catastrophe.
