In The 100% Solution: A Plan for Solving Climate Change (Melville House, Mar 2020), Solomon Goldstein-Rose, a leading millennial climate activist, makes clear what needs to happen to hit the 2050 target: the manufacturing booms we must spur, the moonshot projects we must fund, the amount of CO2 we’ll have to sequester from the atmosphere, and much more.
Written because the author couldn’t find a comprehensive analysis that actually added up to a full solution, this fully-illustrated and accessible book takes readers through high-level logic about what approaches can solve climate change, and presents a brief analysis of physical options for clean equipment and the role various governments, companies, and activists can play.
This book arms activists with specific demands, sets the stakes for what our leaders must achieve, and proves that with comprehensive thinking we can still take back our future.
Solomon Goldstein-Rose was elected to the Massachusetts legislature on a climate change-focused platform at age 22.
