Charging Ahead foretells the world's next great energy transformation: the shift to clean, renewable energy sources. It shows how renewable energy, energy efficiency, and electric vehicles, when used together, can give us back a clean environment and create a healthy, sustainable economy. In chronicling this extraordinary technological revolution, John J. Berger provides a fascinating look at the new industries that will make it possible, and the trillion-dollar benefits Americans can enjoy by choosing pollution-free energy and transportation.
John J. Berger writes and teaches on energy and natural resource issues and is a consultant on environmental science and policy. He is the author of books on nuclear and renewable energy and is the editor of Environmental Restoration: Science and Strategies for Restoring the Earth (1990).
"I found this material interesting and informative."—Vice President Al Gore

"Dr. Berger has laid out a compelling case for what America must do to capture the benefits of renewable energy and conservation. If we can build on his excellent analysis and policy recommendations, our country can avoid spending billions of dollars on foreign oil."—Former U.S. Senator Bill Bradley
