The Green New Deal : Why the Fossil Fuel Civilization Will Collapse by 2028, and the Bold Economic Plan to Save Life on Earth Hardback
While the Green New Deal has become a lightning rod in the political sphere, there is a parallel movement emerging within the business community that will shake the very foundation of the global economy in coming years.
The key sectors that make up the infrastructure of the economy are fast-decoupling from fossil fuels in favor of solar and wind energies that are becoming ever-cheaper.
New studies are sounding the alarm about the prospect of 100 trillion dollars in stranded assets that are creating a carbon bubble likely to burst by 2028 - causing the collapse of the fossil fuel civilisation.
The marketplace is speaking and governments will need to respond if they are to survive and prosper. In The Green New Deal, New York Times bestselling author and renowned economic theorist Jeremy Rifkin delivers the political narrative and economic plan for the Green New Deal that we need at this critical moment in history.
The concurrence of a stranded fossil fuel assets bubble and a green political vision opens up the possibility of a massive shift to a post-carbon ecological era, in time to prevent a temperature rise that will tip us over the edge into runaway climate change.
With twenty-five years of experience implementing Green New Deal-style transitions for both the European Union and the People's Republic of China, Rifkin offers his vision for how to transform the global economy and save life on Earth.
