520    "An engaging, accessible citizen's guide to the seven 
       urgent changes that will really make a difference for our 
       climate-and how we can hold our governments accountable 
       for putting these plans into action. Dozens of kids in 
       Montgomery County, Maryland, agitated until their school 
       board committed to electric school buses. Mothers in 
       Colorado turned up in front of an obscure state panel to 
       fight for clean air. If you think the only thing you can 
       do to combat climate change is to install a smart 
       thermostat or cook plant-based burgers, you're thinking 
       too small. That's where The Big Fix comes in, offering 
       everyday citizens a guide to the seven essential changes 
       our communities must enact to bring our greenhouse gas 
       emissions down to zero-and sharing stories of people who 
       are making those changes reality. Energy policy advisor 
       Hal Harvey and longtime New York Times reporter Justin 
       Gillis hone in on the seven areas where ambitious but 
       eminently practical changes will have the greatest effect:
       electricity production, transportation, buildings, 
       industry, urbanization, use of land, and investment in 
       promising new green technologies. In a lively, jargon-free
       style, the pair illuminate how our political economy 
       really works, revealing who decides everything from what 
       kind of power plants to build to how efficient cars must 
       be before they're allowed on the road to how much 
       insulation a new house requires-and how we can insert 
       ourselves into all these decisions to ensure that the most
       climate-conscious choices are being made. At once 
       pragmatic and inspiring, The Big Fix is an indispensable 
       action plan for citizens looking to drive our country's 
       greenhouse gas emissions down to zero-and save our 
       climate"--|cProvided by publisher.
