Journey to Planet Earth
"It is clear that Plan A, Business as Usual, is no longer viable. We are looking at a race between natural tipping points, and political tipping points."
"Plan B" spans the globe - from China, Japan, Korea, India, Italy, Turkey, Bangladesh, Zambia, Haiti, and the U.S. - to explore new ideas in solving the challenges of global climate change. Featuring some of the world's most original and influential thinkers, "Plan B" provides a glimpse into a new and emerging economy based upon renewable energy sources plus realistic strategies to avoid the growing threat of global warming. Appearing with Lester Brown are Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman, Pulitzer Prize winner Thomas Friedman, former Governor and Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt, along with other scholars and scientists.
Plan B provides audiences with hopeful solutions - a road map that will eradicate poverty, stabilize population, stabilize climate, and protect and restore the earth's forests, soils, and fisheries, as well as conserving biological diversity. It also features case studies that show signs of a new energy economy emerging.
