Under Brune’s leadership, RAN has had stunning success in getting corporations? including Home Depot, FedEx Kinko’s, Citigroup, and Bank of America? to green their business practices, and his activist skills and passion are at the heart of this book.

Here's what you say about us...

?Purging this country of its two-century addiction to fossil fuels is the great task of our time. Here is the resource we have long needed.”
?Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy

? Jeff Goodell, author of Big Coal: The Dirty Secret Behind America’s Energy Future

?Straight from the front lines of the battle for a clean, cheap energy economy, Mike Brune tells the fascinating inside story. With fuel prices soaring, his practical vision for how we can ?come clean’ is tremendously important. I especially appreciate his guidance on how we can make this revolution happen before it’s too late.”
?Wes Boyd, cofounder of MoveOn.Org

?A thoroughly engaging, reader-friendly analysis of our energy dilemma. Brune’s empowering book tells us how to take back our future from the energy bullies leading us down a path to climate chaos.”
? Ross Gelbspan, author of the Heat Is On and Boiling Point

"If politics as usual could do it, the climate crisis would be fixed by now. Of course voting is essential. But so is the Rainforest Action Network's brand of activism: target corporate polluters directly and break their hold over government policy. Mike Brune shows how to do it in a book Exxon-Mobil no doubt wishes had never been published."
? Mark Hertsgaard, author of Earth Odyssey and environment correspondent for The Nation

?An optimistic, realistic, pragmatic call to action. In this eloquent book, Mike Brune offers practical approaches, hope, and inspiration. A must-read for anyone who dreams of a sustainable, just, and peaceful future.”

?At last! A road map to a clean energy future. As Michael Brune says, embracing clean energy is not an obligation, it is an opportunity.”
