Clean Energy Common Sense

Genre: Environmental/ non fiction

Author: Frances Beinecke w/ Bob Deans

Frances Beinecke is the president of the NRDC, ( Natural Resources Defense Council) a national environmental advocacy group. For more than 40 years the NRDC has voiced the need to curb global climate change. This book is a comprehensive, informative guide to doing just that.
Filled with statistics, it presents a very well researched argument that time is running out for this planet and it is time for each and every one of us to do something positive to make changes as soon as possible.
Well- documented facts show that clean energy legislation will cost the average American household somewhere between 23 and 44 cents a day. 23 cents a day to save this planet, sounds like a no- brainer to me. The book outlines how Environmental Entrepreneurs or E2, represents more than 1200 companies that employ more than 400,000 people nationwide. The E2 represents companies that believe in investing in energy efficiency and putting the American people back to work, an excellent joint venture.
Clean Energy, Common Sense lists too many wonderful ideas and strategies to list here, but this book should be used by every teacher of environmental studies, be in every home and every office. The book is concise, well written and informative. Dan Quayle took his message to the big screen, Frances Beinecke is bringing her message in book form, but the message is clear. It is time for the nation to wake up and realize that the clock is ticking on our future. For more information on how to buy the book or how you can take action now, visit: www.nrdc.org today!
