Description
Our relationship with green technology is hardly a recent development; Americans have been imagining and inventing cheap and renewable energy solutions for more than a century. Here Atlantic senior editor Alexis Madrigal introduces us to the brilliant, often irascible inventors who foresaw our current energy problems and drew the blueprint for a green future.

"Headlines filled with nuclear disaster and soaring oil prices have reignited the energy debate while news stories about alternative energy focus almost exclusively on the sexiest new technology. What's lacking is contextual background and perspective. Powering the Dream provides that.... This book is far from a dull scientific read. Mr. Madrigal is a storyteller. He seems naturally drawn to the drama of success and failure and the fascinating eccentrics and visionaries that have taken part in the battle of energy technologies.... Those who are concerned about the future of energy and the environment will find Powering the Dream a very informative and useful resource."NYJournal of Books
