The Future Is Now: Solving the Climate Crisis with Today's Technologies
Author: Bob McDonald (Author)
The Globe and Mail's "Best books to gift this year "
Corporate Knights' "Four solution-packed books about climate change you need to read this fall"
"Bob McDonald uses the global industrial shutdowns brought on by COVID-19 to show that a green future is possible - and upon us. McDonald explores the usual alternative energy sources, but also introduces readers to new ones, including desk-sized nuclear reactors, space-based solar power satellites, and energy from waves, tides, and hydrogen."
--Quill & Quire
"McDonald takes the reader on a bit of an energy safari . . . showing off some of humanity's impressive achievements and explaining how they'll all fit together in a green future . . . making science easily digestible. [T]he book is packed with optimism."
"The Future is Now is not another wake-up call, but rather an optimistic book that looks at existing technologies and how they can be used now to address the environmental emergency."
