Thomas Friedman on Hot, Flat and Crowded

I heard Thomas Friedman on NBC today speaking about his new book: Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution--and How It Can Renew America I plan to add this title with its call for action to the library shelves at New Trier.

Friedman argues that global warming, rapidly growing populations, and the expansion of the world’s middle class through globalization have produced a planet that is “hot, flat, and crowded.” Unless the United States takes the lead in a worldwide effort to replace our wasteful, inefficient energy practices with a strategy for clean energy, energy efficiency, and conservation, it will be too late.
