The journal Nature editorialized in March: “Scientists must now emphasize the science, while acknowledging that they are in a street fight.” Say what you will about Climate Progress, I figured that out a few years before Nature.
The timing couldn’t be better for Straight Up: America’s Fiercest Climate Blogger Takes on the Status Quo Media, Politicians, and Clean Energy Solutions. It’s the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, andGraham, Kerry, and Lieberman are going to introduce their bipartisan climate and clean energy jobs bill a week from today.
The bill will tee off the most important environmental and energy debate of our time. In the book, I put the core issues of the debate — climate science, clean energy solutions, and environmental politics — in perspective. Here’s the back jacket:
The book is the best 1% of my more than 4000 blog posts — arranged thematically. And I did take many of your suggestions (see “What is your favorite Climate Progress post?“). Here’s the table of contents:
