By Christopher C. Swan

What if it used to be attainable to mix strength and water in the sort of means that will give a contribution to the reversal of world warming and the recovery of the planet? What if it have been attainable to have a greater caliber of existence, with no need to renounce whatever? What if that plan made such fiscal experience that governments and big companies might purchase into it?

As it seems, it is attainable to create an power resource by utilizing key applied sciences which are already to be had. such a lot towns have sufficient rain and sunlight to satisfy their water and effort wishes, just by utilizing know-how we already have.

Building on present mainstream traits in solar power and wind energy, Electric Water deals a transparent imaginative and prescient of the way the world’s power and water infrastructure may be remodeled. The booklet provides:

• an summary of the key concerns that want addressing, together with worldwide warming
• a desirable clarification of key applied sciences in simple language
• A imaginative and prescient of industrial and activity possibilities in restoration
• Real-life examples, resembling the Louisiana Coastal recovery program
• web pages for extra information

Unlike many different books in this topic, Electric Water makes use of obtainable language to suggest a doable plan for a progressive integration of know-how and caliber of existence that might be of unique curiosity to planners, engineers, and architects.

Christopher C. Swan is a San Francisco fashion designer, author, and entrepreneur who makes a speciality of infrastructure.
