Book DescriptionWant to fix global warming and get the planet off fossil fuel in the next ninety days? Sounds like a nice save-the-world fantasy. But not for Buck and Petal. For them it's a must-do kind of thing. A do-or-die kind of thing. Disaster guy Buck Planck and Times society columnist Petal Steele are on a mission they can't refuse. Undo ten thousand years of abuse of the environment. Pull all that extra CO2 out of the air. Cool down a feverish planet. Crank up a clean, cheap, and sustainable source of energy. Put an end to coal and oil. And at the same time usher in a new era of economic prosperity. No problem. After all, they've got three months. In this epic eco-thriller, Buck and Petal race across the map in breakneck pursuit of modern man's Holy Grail, assembling around them a team of eccentric characters that just might have a shot at making it happen before time runs out. Before the last day of the Anthropocene. A day that looms just ahead. They sift through every conceivable source of alternative energy-nuclear, geothermal, wind, solar, hydroelectric, bio-mass, and more. The grapple with the massive energy demands of an exploding population and the gargantuan task of cleaning up after their profligate species, which has been dumping carbon into the atmosphere since the night of the first campfire. And in the end, they end up in the middle of the Pacific, poised to push the button on a plan that will either rescue the fragile biosphere or drive a stake through its dying heart.
