New Books and Movies

February 20, 2011

I knew Prince Charles was interested in sustainability, architecture, and climate change, and I knew that he was writing a book. I still haven’t read Harmony: A New Way of Looking at the World, but I recently found out that there is a movie by the same title.

I can’t wait to see the movie Carbon Nation, released February 11, 2011. The reviews have generally been favorable regarding its treatment of clean energy and green technologies.

I was listening to KUOW on my way to school the other evening and listened to an interview with Mark Stevenson. He has a new book out, entitled An Optimist’s Tour of the Future – One Curious Man Sets Out to Answer “What’s Next?” He set out on a journey around the world to talk with experts on everything from climate change to robots to synthetic biology. He came away with an optimistic view that the future is going to be fantastic. There are some really great videos on his website that are worth watching.
