2008-06-25 08:37:583. Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail och Succed, Jared Diamond
Summer often means reading. Today we recommend two interesting articles and two books. Both articles are from the latest The Economist. The books are available at amazon.com.
1. The Future of Energy – A fundamental change is coming sooner than you think, The Economist
2. The power and the Glory, The Economist
Jared Diamond's Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed is the glass-half-empty follow-up to his Pulitzer Prize-winning Guns, Germs, and Steel. While Guns, Germs, and Steel explained the geographic and environmental reasons why some human populations have flourished, Collapse uses the same factors to examine why ancient societies, including the Anasazi of the American Southwest and the Viking colonies of Greenland, as well as modern ones such as Rwanda, have fallen apart
4. Earth: The Sequel: The Race to Reinvent Energy and Stop Global Warming, Fred Krupp
Environmental Defense Fund president Krupp and journalist Horn proffer a business-centric prescription for alleviating climate change, coupling the market force of capitalism with technological innovation and entrepreneurial inventiveness. The authors argue in favor of strict federal carbon caps, which would induce innovators to explore new ways to control carbon dioxide emissions. The book notes the global and historical successes of cap and trade mechanisms, such as the Clean Air Act of 1990.
