Stormy Weather deals head-on with our most urgent environmental challenge yet, and it is the only book to put simple, effective solutions to global warming in the hands of ordinary citizens, communities, businesses, power utilities, state governments, and national leaders.

In a clear style, Stormy Weather explains why the planet has reached this crisis and how scientists predict “runaway” climate change will affect the Earth and our lives. The solutions to global warming revolve around 12 core methods of reducing our use of fossil fuels and filling our energy needs with solar, wind, tidal, and bio fuels. Each user-friendly solution is organized on two facing pages with a description, illustrations, quotations, resources, and a detailed “how-to” section. Solutions are grouped by social sector (individuals, citizen groups, towns and cities, state government, power utilities, businesses, oil, coal & gas corporations, automobile corporations, national governments, and developing nations). The book breaks up vital planet-saving tasks into manageable activities for both individuals and larger organizations.
