Book Category: Climate Change and Clean Energy

John Slade weaves 20 years of international research on the twin themes of Climate Change and Clean Energy into vibrant novels. The characters, young people from around the world, will soon inherit the great challenges of a changing planet. They rise to meet these challenges with courage, intelligence, and hope.

The chapters are short, the writing is crystal clear. Slade’s books encourage readers to stretch their minds around the entire world, and to the end of the century. Slade also offers a book of poems, and a book of short essays. Both invite readers to address the Big Questions. Shall we continue taking baby steps toward a global catastrophe, or long bold strides into the Renaissance of the 21st century?

Slade’s books are unique and powerful. Spend one hour on a Sunday evening with “Invitation to a Renaissance,” and you will have launched on an extraordinary journey.
