I confess to temporary aversion to climate change books, just because I’ve consumed so many over the past two years. But “The Big Fix: Seven Practical Steps to Save Our Planet” could not be ignored. A collaboration between an energy policy wonk and a NYT climate change reporter, the book is a clear-eyed and persuasively written callout to “make the transition from green consumer to green citizen,” to politically campaign at all levels of government for climate crisis action. After a riveting introduction to the issue that is as clear as a bell, the authors tackle the complete gamut of decarbonization imperatives the world faces, from elimination of fossil fuels and electrification to urban planning, manufacturing/building standards, R&D, and eating less meat. Buttressed by inspirational real-life case studies, many of which I had never read about before, a wide-ranging blueprint for immediate action is set out. For anyone seeking policy clarity (albeit from mostly an American perspective) or questing for purpose, The Big Fix is a ready treasure.
