Fifteen climate experts combine forces to present a plan for slowing and ultimately preventing further destruction to our planet.

As governments and businesses continue to set climate goals for reducing carbon emissions and slowing global warming, scientists, engineers, and policymakers are using cutting-edge research to introduce new climate technologies and strategies for achieving and potentially surpassing these goals.

Presented by world-leading climate scientists and futurists, Proven Climate Solutions offers a dynamic, evidence-based action plan that uncovers the hard work, dedication, and best practices of climate heroes who are accelerating change and winning the battle to protect our environment. BF Nagy along with Bill McKibben, Mark Jacobson, Robert Howarth, Nancy Ryan, and ten other top climate leaders have synthesized a clear pathway for a rapid energy transition ramp-up. This includes game-changing climate emergency solutions and governing policies to supercharge deployment and finally retire old, obsolete systems and tired ideas.

The essays included cover a wide range of environmental innovations from renewables and batteries to water technologies and biodiversity and much more, highlighting the strengths, weaknesses, and roles to be played by new technologies and offering readers encouragement for a climate-friendly future. It is long past time to halt the nonsense and destruction, instead embracing the crucial changes and bold actions needed to create an equitable, affordable, and healthy world for our children. This definitive guide provides the facts on proven, practical solutions now being deployed, and how these solutions can be accelerated to save our planet before it's too late.

Industry Reviews

If, like me, you sometimes are hard pressed to feel hopeful that those with the power to change will do so in time to avoid the total erasure of places and societies on this planet, you will be heartened to know that a range of experts from various fields have sensible, practical solutions that are already here or could be put in place by businesses and governments if we push them to act now. You will find much to engage you here.

--Mary D. Nichols, former Chair of the California Air Resources Board

This volume represents the triple crown of publishing. One of those remarkable books that is incredibly readable, relatively comprehensive, and usable for novice and expert alike. Indeed, if one were choosing a single volume on the state of our struggle against an increasingly destabilized global climate to send to policy makers, this would be the book.

--Steven A. Leibo, PhD, professor emeritus, Russell Sage College; former research associate, Harvard University; international affairs analyst, Northeast Public Radio; and mentor, the Climate Reality Project

Tomorrow's Steven Spielbergs and George Lucases will thrill their audiences with the stories of today's climate heroes. To get a sense of who they are and what they are trying to do, read this book--then help the spotlighted solutions cool our planet's fevered brow.

--John Elkington, cofounder of Environmental Data Services (ENDS), SustainAbility, and Volans and author of twenty-one books including "Green Swans" and "Tickling Sharks"
