Once a major wildfire is burning, it’s too late for fire prevention and sometimes beyond the efforts of firefighters. That’s why the most important person preventing a house from burning is the homeowner, who can provide critical protection in advance. If you live in an area threatened by wildfires, this book shows the most important steps you can take to preserve your home.

Foreword by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Offering effective tools for addressing the dual crises of climate change and the economy, Invisible Energy demonstrates the huge potential benefits of implementing energy efficiency technology and policies. This book shows how the two major challenges of our time are related, how market failures actually restrict competition, and how they impede the development of energy efficient products. Moreover, because no single trade association benefits from advocating for efficiency, the “hidden energy” of efficient use is a forgotten resource both in comparison to green energy as well as polluting sources. This book shows how thoughtful policies, smart regulations, and new technologies can support a drastic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions while at the same time fostering greater economic growth, not less.
