📙 Rooftop Revolution: How Solar Power Can Save Our Economy-and Our Planet-from Dirty Energy by Danny Kennedy, narrator Kevin Pierce


3.6


The Biggest Untold Economic Story of Our TimeHere is the truth that the powerful Dirty Energy public relations machine doesn't want you to know: the ascent of solar energy is upon us. The production of solar-generated electricity has risen exponentially in the last few years, and employment in the solar industry has doubled since 2009. Meanwhile, electricity from coal has declined to pre-World War II levels as the fossil fuel industry continues to shed jobs.Danny Kennedy systematically refutes the lies spread by solar's opponents-that it is expensive, inefficient, and unreliable; that it is kept alive only by subsidies; that it can't be scaled; and many other untruths. He shows that we need a rooftop revolution to break the entrenched power of the coal, oil, nuclear, and gas industries. Solar energy can create more jobs, return our nation to prosperity, and ensure the sustainability and safety of our planet. Now is the time to move away from the dangerous energy sources of the past and unleash the amazing potential of the sun. ©2013 Danny Kennedy (P)2013 Danny Kennedy

"Times have changed"

I read this book recently after the bankruptcy of Sungevity. The book really indicates solar is the future and I do believe that but then even with great vision and ambition it still manages to fail. I believe Dan Kennedys heart was in the right place but now we will have to look further into the demise of this company. Was it greed, poorly managed, or is it that solar is not as profitable as indicated in this book. Maybe just maybe King Kong has won again. Only time will tell.
