With the global climate crisis continuing to spiral out of control,
the time for tough conversations about what it will really take to
create a healthy future for humanity is here.
The Only Future That Will Sustain the Human Race
People around the world recognize the dire threat posed by climate change. Governments, businesses, and individuals are making commitments to shift to renewable energy sources, trim consumption, and otherwise reduce their carbon footprints. But what if these steps are woefully inadequate to ensure the future health—or even the survival—of the human race? What if the most popular goal being pursued by today's climate activists—net zero carbon emissions—is actually a recipe for human disaster?
That's the warning being sounded by scientist, engineer, and entrepreneur Peter Fiekowsky . . . along with an urgent call to refocus our rescue efforts on a much bigger, bolder, yet fully achievable goal—the goal of restoring the climate to the healthy state that will allow human beings to thrive.

What Reviewers Are Saying
“With inviting clarity and an engaging optimism, Fiekowsky considers four promising solutions [for climate restoration], presenting the possibilities with persuasive power. He simplifies the science for easy comprehension, and makes the case with such hopeful vigor that the book becomes something rare: a dead-serious, no-illusions look at climate change that doesn’t stir despair.”
