This book is really about how we can take advantage of our growing green needs by investing in the companies that are positioned well to meet such needs - It's written for investing purpose, not for fighting the climate change. However, the book was insightful to provide investors' point of view on this "eco revolution"; what are involved and how they work.
Specifically, the book can educate you on the following points:
- Some of the major issues around global warming and energy security
- Types of businesses that provide products and services to address those issues
- Explanation about technologies and processes utilized, and their advantages and disadvantages
- Specific names of companies positioned well to grow with this green momentum
So even though the book isn't really about how to be green, it provides a very good overview of what technologies/processes are being used or developed, how money is flowing in to each area, which company or technologies are viewed as promising, etc. In a way this knowledge can be used to be green - by investing in a company that can drive eco-solutions AND positioned well in the market.
