Buy This Alternative Book

Here at the Alternative Energy Blog, while not underestimating the scale of the challenges facing the world, we like to talk about solutions. Another website that has consistently done this is World Changing, which started as an award winning group blog, became a non-profit and has now also become a 600 page book.

This firecracker of a book is about the future of the world, full of big ideas on how humanity, technology and our environment can interact in a positive way. If you are tired of pessimistic doom and gloom tomes on the state of the world and the business as usual messages of many of our political & business leaders, this is the book for you. It is a optimistic read, overflowing with ideas for change.

What are you waiting for?

Go buy World Changing and instead of the Barefoot Contessa, let's see barefoot solar engineers on the top sellers list.

That's what alternative energy is all about. More information is definitely needed on the topic.

I'm just starting to dive into the learning curve.

Sounds intriguing.

Have you read Cradle to Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things? Also visionary... perhaps this "positive thinking" is the new wave of influence...

Still, I imagine there's a place for gloom & doom too... some people are motivated by glorious vision, others by fear of consequence.

I really thing you would enjoy this new video I just saw about the use of solar cooking in refugee camps in Kenya. The deforestation in that area is astounding, and many people barter what little they have for food for charcoal to cook whatever remaining food they might have. Solar Cookers International (are you familiar with their work?) has been working with the refugees to teach them solar cooking, and you cannot believe the impact that it has made. There is a really short clip of it on YouTube, and the video is available here:

It's good to hear BP & GM talk about alternative fuels, but 50 years to implement is too long.

Perhaps this link will spark more attention:

It is GM's electric concept car the Chevy Volt. If more people begin to demand alternative fuel cars, we should be able to speed the rate at which the technology is developed.

We have started an Investor Forum where Investors can meet and discuss topics like this:
