Summary
Acclaimed scientist Tim Flannery investigates exciting new technologies currently being developed to address our most pressing environmental threats in a book that presents a positive future for us and our planet. Climate change, food production and toxic pollution present huge challenges, but, as Flannery shows, we already have innovative, practical and inspiring solutions. Solar energy has, until now, been limited to supplying power only when the sun is shining. But new technology using concentrated sunlight to provide intense heat energy that can be effectively stored, provides clean renewable power around the clock. Furthermore, the large amounts of power produced can be used to tackle the issue of feeding the world's growing population by enabling energy-intense methods of purifying polluted land for agricultural production
