Greener. Tom Friedman preaches to readers about a greener life in his new book, Hot, Flat and Crowded. Friedman connects three issues in this book: global warming, the rise of the global middle class, and the increase in world population. He challenges America to tackling this crisis with innovation. He wants us to become the world leader in green energy and in finding innovative ways out of the mess we’re in. While much of his message resonated for me, I found his tone so preachy at times that I needed to take a break from the text. The message is worth hearing, even if the messenger can be hard to listen to.
