Publisher Description

"At last--a global plan that actually adds up."--James Hansen, former director, NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies

The world must reach negative greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 to avoid the most catastrophic effects of climate change. Yet no single plan has addressed the full scope of the problem--until now.

In The 100% Solution, Solomon Goldstein-Rose--a leading millennial climate activist and a former Massachusetts state representative--makes clear what needs to happen to hit the 2050 target: the manufacturing booms we must spur, the moonshot projects we must fund, the amount of CO2 we'll have to sequester from the atmosphere, and much more.

Most importantly, he shows us the more prosperous and equitable world we can build by uniting the efforts of activists, industries, governments, scientists, and voters to get the job done.

This is the guide we've been waiting for. As calls for a WWII-scale mobilization intensify--especially among youth activists--this fully illustrated, action-oriented book arms us with specific demands, sets the stakes for what our leaders must achieve, and proves that with this level of comprehensive thinking we can still take back our future.

Great information, very dry and repetitive writing style

The information contained in this book is extremely useful and it lays out the world’s greenhouse gas emissions very clearly, separating the problem into each category and going through the processes that produce emissions.

However, I found the writing overly repetitive, the author seems to feel the need to repeat his mission statement and other important points far too often for me. It felt like reading a politician’s attempt to hammer messages into my brain (which it was). I loved learning about the real issues, but the book could have been half as long. I’d recommend Bill Gates’s How to Avoid a Climate Disaster over this. Same info more or less, and much more fun to read. Still thankful this book exists because it’s a good intro to the topic.
