Contest: Come up with a title for Joseph Romm’s book
My publisher and I still haven’t come up with a title that works. The problem is that there are a great many books on climate and/or clean energy solutions coming out right now many with similar sounding titles.
I do think this collection of blog posts accomplishes what I try to do on my blog — save readers time, cut through the crap, and focus on what’s important in climate science, solution, and politics (with a hefty dose of old-media critiques). The trick is it making that all clear in a few, catchy words.
I prefer figures of speech — The Hype About Hydrogen is my best-selling book. And don’t worry too much about the subtitle — it will explain what the book covers, and I have a pretty good idea for that, but don’t want to thwart any of your creativity by putting out any ideas right now.
If we end up choosing your suggestion (or something very similar), you’ll get free copy of the book (woo-hoo) and you can write a guest blog post! For similar sounding suggestions, the earliest entry wins. You can build on someone else’s idea — in fact, that’s usually how the best title is ultimately found.
Enter as many suggestions as you want. Do use Google to check whether the title is sufficiently original.
