Gird yourself for the message that three-time Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times foreign affairs columnist and best-selling author Thomas Friedman will offer tonight. Hes stopping in at the University of Colorado at Boulders Macky Auditorium in support of his latest work, Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution And How it Can Renew America. No doomsayer, Friedman calls for replacing our old fossil-fuel power production and consumption model with a geo-greenism that embraces clean, renewable energy technology. With America leading this charge, he argues, we can once again claim to be the leaders of the free world, finally making nice with Mother Earth while softening geo-political nastiness in the Middle East.
