Summary
The inspiring true account of one man's successful mission to bring sustainability into the building industry around the world. The winner of three Indie Book Awards, Explosion Green tells the twenty-year story of the global green building movement through the eyes of David Gottfried, the man who helped start it all. Explosion Green reveals the inner workings of the building industry as it comes to grips with the need for environmentally friendly practices. It describes how the industry has evolved, and how this evolution has helped fight climate change and prevent further damage to the environment while creating a multibillion-dollar industry. Filled with his unique insight and self-deprecating humor, Gottfried's riveting memoir demonstrates how one person can start a global movement. "Our future depends on sustainability ... David Gottfried's pioneering work is proof that we can do it, and Explosion Green tells us how." -- President Bill Clinton "Transformation of the most important sector in the nation's energy economy resulted from David Gottfried's pioneering work. Students and professionals will be inspired by this book as it describes the pathway that led to such monumental results." -- Gil Masters, Professor Emeritus of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Stanford University "David inspires us to believe we have the ability to envision a future that we might create. He has lived it firsthand and generously shares his learning with us." -- Maria Atkinson Am, Cofounder, Green Building Council of Australia
