The Blueprint: Averting Global Collapse (free ebook download for 7/26 only)

From the author's website:
WE ARE FACED WITH AN IMPENDING CALAMITY that threatens to bankrupt the planetary ecosystem and with it much of the manmade world. Rirdan submits a plan that truly goes the distance: a highly detailed, planetary-wide blueprint that lays out a new course for our technological and industrial engines. It calls for sweeping adjustments in the way every person thinks and lives.

The plan is grounded in over five hundred peer-reviewed articles, communication with scores of other top experts, advanced computations, and simulations. Rirdan offers immediately employable designs that lay down new paths for our economy, technology, industry, and politics.

The plan includes renewables that in tandem can provide 24/7 power for the entire electrical grid; a radically altered economy, based on regenerative management of existing resources; and the use of rotational, intensive grazing of livestock as part of the effort to rewild nature. Furthermore, the book illustrates why a carbon neutral economy is inadequate at this late stage, and introduces a practical plan to capture hundreds of billions of tons of carbon from the air.

The Blueprint is a call to arms, an argument for remaking the world and reclaiming the future for our children.

From the author:

The Blueprint is like Al Gore's book Our Choice--on steroids. Kirkus Reviews wrote of it: "an essential addition to any environmentalist's reading list." Award winning author, David Suzuki stated “Rirdan’s book must be read so we can follow his recommendations. We have no choice and time is terrifyingly short.” "This book is filled with interesting ideas—it will get you thinking in new directions!" —commented Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth, founder of 350.org
