The Post Carbon Reader
October 10, 2010 was the largest day of political action in world history, [according to, well, us].
Hundreds of thousands of people in nearly 200 nations got to work planting gardens, installing solar and wind power, and increasing community resilience at all levels—showing politicians that since We the People are willing to do the hard work and get serious about climate change, we expect the same from them.
On the same day, UC Press released The Post Carbon Reader, billed as the “ultimate resource for those concerned with issues of food, water, energy, population, climate and energy.”
With essays by Bill McKibben, Wes Jackson, David Orr, Erika Allen, Stephanie Mills, Richard Heinberg and others, The Post Carbon Reader focuses on and integrates the key issues shaping our new century, from renewable energy and urban agriculture to social justice and community resilience.
The collection of essays not only takes a hard-nosed look at the interconnected threats to global sustainability, but presents some of the most promising responses.
