Description


"An important read for anyone in need of optimism about our ability to build a clean energy future."--BILL GATES

"Illuminating, incisive, and deeply reported."--DAVID WALLACE-WELLS, New York Times-bestselling author of The Uninhabitable Earth

Our age will be defined by the climate emergency. Contrary to the doomist narrative that's taken hold about the climate emergency, the world has already begun deploying the solutions needed to deal with it. On a journey across five continents, Climate Capitalism tracks the unlikely heroes driving the fight against climate change. From the Chinese bureaucrat who did more to make electric cars a reality than Elon Musk, to the Danish students who helped to build the world's longest-operating wind turbine, or the American oil executive building the technology that can reverse climate damages, we meet the people working to scale technologies that are finally able to bend the emissions curve.

Through stories that bring people, policy and technology together, Akshat Rathi reveals how the green economy is not only possible, but profitable. This inspiring blend of business, science, and history provides the framework for ensuring that future generations can live in prosperity and that the wheels of progress don't falter.

Reviews


"Climate innovation has accelerated far faster than many realize and by shining a spotlight on the solutions and innovators driving progress, Climate Capitalism is an important read for anyone in need of optimism about our ability to build a clean energy future."
--Bill Gates

"This encouraging book highlights the preponderance of positive developments regarding the efforts, worldwide, to deal with climate change....[A] refreshing take on the green revolution."
--Ed Meek, The Arts Fuse

"There is a cost to addressing climate change, but it will make us richer, happier, healthier, safer and more equal. Do we take the bargain? That is the animating question of Akshat Rathi's illuminating and incisive book, which offers the dazzling and deeply reported argument that the answer should be, overwhelmingly, yes."
--David Wallace-Wells, author of The Uninhabitable Earth and New York Times columnist

"Can our current unjust and destructive economic system be wrenched into alignment with the biosphere that supports us? Rathi shows this process beginning, and gives hope that we might make it work. An inspiring book!"
--Kim Stanley Robinson, author of The Ministry for the Future

"Few books on either climate or capitalism manage to be as insightful as they are readable, but Akshat Rathi cracks it. He delivers his powerful and hopeful message with both substance and style. These stories of courage, ingenuity and humanity will be told, and retold."
--Paul Polman, co-author of Net-Positive and former CEO of Unilever

"It's easy to feel fear or despair in the face of humanity's greatest challenge. Now thanks to policy and technology innovations, positive change is accelerating all around us. Akshat Rathi's brilliantly written account of some of those stories is an inspiration to keep going in a fight which we have no other option than to win."
--Baroness Bryony Worthington, member of the UK's House of Lords

"A superb, wide-ranging analysis of the green revolution sweeping the global economy, from one of the world's leading climate journalists."
--Simon Mundy, author of Race for Tomorrow

"Akshat Rathi's offers a unique perspective on the leaders driving a total transformation of everything around us. It's happening not just in rich, western countries, but as Akshat chronicles it's starting to happen everywhere and led by China."
--Tim Buckley, director of Clean Energy Finance

"It's cheaper than ever to fix, and much less expensive than protecting the status quo. Akshat Rathi guides us through the staggering innovations--and heroes--that make a clean energy future possible. This book provides a much-needed dose of optimism--based on data, not blind hope--that we can step up to the challenge."
--Hannah Ritchie, lead researcher for Our World In Data

"Akshat Rathi skillfully lays out the irony that capitalism may be the source of but also the solution to our climate change problems. Using examples of technologies and national plans, he shows how we need a new form of capitalism, where corporations, governments and people will have to align. It can be done."
--Rahul Tongia, senior fellow at the Centre for Social and Economic Progress

"'It's now cheaper to save the world than destroy it,' writes Akshat Rathi in this bold new book. Give it to the doomsayer in your life."
--John Schwartz, journalism professor at University of Texas-Austin and veteran New York Times science and climate reporter
