“The Geography of Hope: A Tour of the World We Need” by Chris Turner

A comprehensive overview of the environment movement, both the ideology and practice, technologies and techniques, peoples and policies. It goes way beyond recycle bins, solar panels and hybrid cars, and introduces the readers to a whole new way of defining economic growth, our relationship with and responsibility for the environment. It is not only sustainable energy, but sustainable communities and lifestyle.

The author travels around the world to interview pioneers of the environment movement. Farmers in Denmark, engineers in Germany, villagers in Thailand, architects in India, vice president of the United States, and an architect who designed and built energy-plus houses by drawing inspiration from a mango.
