HOT, FLAT, AND CROWDED Why We Need a Green Revolution—and How It Can Renew America

by | Read by Oliver Wyman

Contemporary Culture • 21 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Erratic climate change, ever-increasing global consumer demands, and an ever-increasing world population (hot, flat, and crowded) are the greatest challenges the world has to face in the twenty-first century. Thomas Friedman is not interested in sounding an alarm. He's calling to arms America's good old, though slightly dormant, entrepreneurial and inventive spirit. Narrator Oliver Wyman deftly reflects Friedman's intelligence, passion, and, perhaps most importantly, impartiality when discussing such hot-button issues as Middle Eastern petro politics, third-world deforestation, and China's skyrocketing demand for energy. Wyman's voice is at its brightest when calling for a new, out-of-the-box green patriotism, reflecting Friedman’s belief that the United States can and should be the world's leader in finding the "tools, systems, energy sources, and ethics" to create a world we can live in for centuries to come.
