You are invited to visit the year 2050. Once there, you’ll see how a “wide path” of expansive innovation and a range of clean energies solved the climate crisis.

Path to Zero Book

Pre-Order Now On:

Path to Zero is based on Tucker Perkin’s Path to Zero podcast. In his book, Tucker reflects on 12 of his most memorable conversations with renowned climate scientists, academics, and innovators. Each chapter draws a bright line from the year 2050 back to today to show a variety of climate-friendly solutions that already exist can create a net zero carbon future. His “wide path” philosophy confidently asserts that we can, and are, addressing climate change.

“Kudos to Tucker Perkins for gathering, and thoughtfully distilling, a wide array of input, and then taking us on a romp to 2050 to see what net zero might actually entail, looking back. To be sure, no one has a patent on truth; we can only seek it. But Tucker does a wonderful job in the seeking. Everyone should come along for the ride!”

— Dr. Scott Tinker, American geologist, educator, energy expert, and host of the PBS show Energy Switch
