-The Only Future That Will Sustain the Human Race-

We CAN restore a safe climate!  

How we get there will surprise you.

People around the world recognize the dire threat posed by climate change. Governments, businesses, and individuals are making commitments to shift to renewable energy sources, trim consumption, and otherwise reduce their carbon footprints.


But what if these well-intentioned steps are likely to be woefully inadequate to ensure the future health—or even the survival—of the human race? What if the most popular goal being pursued by today’s climate activists—net zero carbon emissions—is actually a recipe for human disaster?


That’s the dramatic warning sounded by scientist, engineer, and entrepreneur Peter Fiekowsky and co-author Carole Douglis. . . along with an urgent call to refocus our rescue efforts on a much bigger, bolder, yet fully achievable goal. That goal is to restore the climate to its pre-industrial state, in which we know human beings can thrive.

"Effective and galvanizing . . .     

An invigorating, thought-provoking plan to address climate change.”

—Kirkus Reviews
