Publisher's Summary

Ten inspiring breakthroughs from inside the global race towards zero emissions.

It's now cheaper to save the world than destroy it.

Our age will be defined by the climate emergency. But contrary to the doomist narrative that's taken hold, the world has already begun deploying the solutions needed to deal with it.

On a journey across five continents, Climate Capitalism tracks the unlikely heroes driving the fight against climate change. From the Chinese bureaucrat who did more to make electric cars a reality than Elon Musk, to the Danish students who helped to build the world's longest-operating wind turbine, or the American oil executive building the technology that can reverse climate damages, we meet the people working to scale technologies that are finally able to bend the emissions curve.

Through stories that bring people, policy and technology together, Akshat Rathi reveals how the green economy is not only possible, but profitable. This inspiring blend of business, science, and history provides the framework for ensuring that future generations can live in prosperity and that the wheels of progress don't falter.

Awesome book that summarise the current effort on climate change

This book tackles several aspects of the problem and place actions made in historical and sociological-economic contexts. It is also quite optimistic as it highlights the turn of economic models toward a more sustainable approach.
