The Blueprint: Averting Global Collapse book is out!
Jun 22, 2012

Daniel Rirdan's book "The Blueprint: Averting Global Collapse" is finally out! http://www.amazon.com/dp/1470135884/

So far the book received a good positive Kirkus review as well as it got testimonials from two very well-known people in the field: David Suzuki and Bill McKibben! This is a very exciting and very promising start!

"I'm offering a highly detailed, planet-wide plan that constitutes anything but light-hearted tips," Rirdan says. "The Blueprint is based on meticulous research and consideration, communication with revered experts, 500 peer-reviewed articles, and copious computations and simulations, which, together, paint the sobering picture of the future and provide guideposts for recovery. Its immediately employable designs would redefine traditional systems, setting a new path for our economy, technology, industry and politics."

Among other subjects, Rirdan addresses co-working renewables that can power the entire electrical grid 24/7; a radically altered economy based on regenerative management of existing resources; and the use of rotational, intensive grazing of livestock that "rewilds" nature. He also illustrates why a carbon-neutral economy is inadequate at this late stage, and introduces a practical plan to capture hundreds of billions of tons of carbon from the air. Furthermore, Rirdan calls for augmenting disparate, outmoded government systems with one world government -- and other experts are taking note.


From Kirkus Reviews

“Rirdan’s prescriptive nonfiction debut provides suggestions to ensure the planet’s continued environmental health. The author sets forth his plan for salvation, ambitiously addressing every major threat to the environment: climate change, deforestation, overfishing, wetlands drainage and excess consumption. His scope is broader than most environmentalist writers, including Al Gore in his seminal book on climate change....Rirdan’s thorough, readable treatment of the questions society must confront makes this book an essential addition to any environmentalist’s reading list.”


“Books and websites may tout “ten easy ways to save the planet”....The way to avoid the catast­rophe that confronts us is not going to be easy or simple, but urgently imperative. For all who care about the future for our children and our species, Rirdan’s book must be read so we can follow his recommendations. We have no choice and time is terrifyingly short.” —David Suzuki, Ph.D., award-winning scientist and environmentalist author

“This book is filled with interesting ideas—it will get you thinking in new directions!” —Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth, founder of 350.org
