"Comparing human inaction to that of a frog in boiling water, Waking the Frog explains why climate disruption might just be our very own pot of hot water. In this highly readable account, venture capitalist, entrepreneur, engineer, and philosopher Tom Rand explains our stasis in the face of one of the most fundamental problems of our time. Rand{u2019}s account doesn{u2019}t just point fingers at the bad guys; he looks deeper into our unwillingness to react {u2014} our motivations, institutional lethargy, and deeply buried assumptions about market economics. Waking the Frog is as much about solutions as it is an account of our present paralysis {u2014} Rand provides refreshing ideas on how our ingenuity, technology, capital, and policy can work together to turn down the heat and at the same time enable the largest economic opportunity of the 21st century"--Dust jacket flap.
