There is no green energy. Nor pink, nor black. Nor clean nor dirty, for that matter.
In this intelligent, eye-opening, and witty international bestseller, an eminent climate expert takes a graphic novelist on a journey to understand the profound changes that our planet is experiencing. The scientist, Jean-Marc Jancovici, explains the workings of superpowers and history; oil and climate; ecology, economics, and energy flows. He describes, in short, the world we live in today—a world whose future is deeply uncertain. The artist, Christophe Blain, intently listens and draws.
As the pair come face to face with global warming, they—along with Mother Nature and a cast of others—create a picture of what the solution to our predicament actually looks like. It’s not just about switching to renewable energy sources. It’s about rethinking everything: our energy supply, our economies, and our whole world. We’re left with a vision of the future in which food, education, housing, transport, and communities—in other words, all of us—come together and, with a few technological fixes, work to create a world without end.
