While most people acknowledge the toll of burning fossil fuels on earth's climate, few consider what will happen when demand for carbon-based fuels inevitably outstrips supply. In The Age of Sustainability Denis Pombriant evaluates and recommends solutions for energy provisioning and reducing carbon pollution that will keep the planet habitable and accommodating to human life. Far from being an unsolvable problem climate change and its solution should be seen as another in a long line of inflection points that have dotted human history. Cracking the problem is more like solving Rubic's Cube than playing whack-a-mole. As in all earlier eras, the next evolutionary step involves disruptive innovations beginning with new energy alternatives and treating carbon pollution as a chronic problem rather than as an emergency. By doubling the amount of photosynthesis planet-wide, we can stabilize climate and provision for the additional billions of people who will be born by mid-century. The Age of Sustainability shows that many the innovations needed to provide workable solutions are already available and that the free market is already adopting them. It also demonstrates how earlier generations have followed a common path to solving the big challenges of their times. This is a hopeful tour of solutions and, most importantly including economic models that will stabilize climate and provide a livable future for the human race.

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong took 'one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.' The success of the Apollo 11 mission satisfied the goal that had been set by President John F. Kennedy just over eight years earlier. It also raised the question 'What do you do next, after landing on the Moon?' It fell to President Richard M. Nixon to answer this question. After Apollo? Richard Nixon and the American Space Program traces in detail how Nixon and his associates went about developing their response.

When Ronald Reagan was elected in 1980, limits on NASA funding and the lack of direction under the Nixon and Carter administrations had left the U.S. space program at a crossroads. In contrast to his predecessors, Reagan saw outer space as humanity’s final frontier and as an opportunity for global leadership. His optimism and belief in American exceptionalism guided a decade of U.S. activities in space, including bringing the space shuttle into operation, dealing with the 1986 Challenger accident and its aftermath, committing to a permanently crewed space station, encouraging private sector space efforts, and fostering international space partnerships with both U.S. allies and with the Soviet Union. Drawing from a trove of declassified primary source materials and oral history interviews, John M. Logsdon provides the first comprehensive account of Reagan’s civilian and commercial space policies during his eight years in the White House. Even as a fiscal conservative who was hesitant to increase NASA’s budget, Reagan’s enthusiasm for the space program made him perhaps the most pro-space president in American history.
