Green: The New Red, White And Blue

Regular price $4.97

New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman travels the globe to unravel the tangled web of where we get our energy and what we can do to change its effects on the planet. He visits the front lines of a revolution that is just now taking shape, and shows what is at stake for all of us.

Friedman starts with businesses whose products we use every day. At Google, he discovers one of the unexpected byproducts of internet searches: heat. This heat takes a lot of energy to cool. Google is finding new ways to solve this problem. At Wal-Mart, a new prototype green superstore is being planned. The new stores would save Wal-Mart billions of dollars, all while helping the Earth. From Main Street America to the highest offices in the country, we find out what can and is being done. Political leaders are getting smart to going green, too. In Montana, the governor is on a quest to clean up coal; the governor of California is helping pass some of the country's greenest laws.

Global warming may be an inconvenient truth, but there are solutions, and they are taking hold at a grassroots level. America is embracing the new green revolution sprouting from its red, white and blue roots. Reducing energy consumption and global warming begins at home. Just ask the greens.
