Our latest and last book, The Great Transition: Shifting from Fossil Fuels to Solar and Wind Energy, has been released to great reviews and a great splash reception.

This lucid overview of world energy is surprisingly devoid of gloom.

Amid all the doom, gloom, and denial, here comes a book that promises some good news regarding viable energy resources in the age of climate change. … By carefully analyzing policies and practices already in place around the world, Brown and his team of researchers demonstrate that new energy sources will be commonplace sooner than we think.

“The Great Transition” reads like a brief, breezy synopsis,  … but its selected observations, arguments and conclusions are based in large part on years of observational data and deep research. It holds kernels of what the best and most optimistic future might look like if we pay attention and act in sensible ways with the tools and resources now available.

The book reception was held at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace on Friday, April 24, 2015.

Along with the great eats and drinks were brief comments on the book by three of the authors: Lester Brown, Janet Larsen, and J. Matthew Roney.

Our thanks to Cynthia Wagner who became our unofficial photographer!

Copies of the book can be purchased at EPI’s website through June 30, 2015.

Check out our events page to see where Lester, Janet, and Matt will be speaking about the Great Transition.
