Putting the Genie Back: Solving the Climate and Energy Dilemma

Shell Chief Climate Change Strategist and C2ES board member David Hone tells the story of the climate change issue and the transition in the energy system that must be implemented to finally address it.

The book brings together and builds on Hone’s blogs and e-book series, covering many of the pertinent issues of climate change today, including carbon trading and the Paris Agreement.

Stepping away from the emotional aspect of climate change, Hone addresses the topic from an engineering perspective. He argues for a transition in our fossil fuel-based energy system, which ushered in the Industrial Revolution nearly 200 years ago and continues to grow and evolve, even as new sources of energy come into the market and compete.
