Have a question?
Hello, Focus the Nation! Can you tell me whether the hard copy of the books have been mailed? It's mid-December and I haven't yet received mine. I'm hoping to use the information with my classes. Please let me know the status.
Hi Albert - can you send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can verify your email address? We sent the pdf to an email address we have on file for you, I just don't want to post it here. Thanks so much!
- Team FTN
Got email saying you sent out PDFs. Haven't gotten mine yet?
Any idea on how long away the e-book is?
My bad. Mid-September. I see the Est. Delivery date now. I'll read better next time. Looking forward to the book!
Any ETA on the interactive books?
Congrats Ben and team on moving towards solutions!
Yay I pledged the last remaining dollars, good job on the fundraising yall.
Of course! This resource will be entirely based on facts, stats, and science. Everyone involved agrees that the thoughtless and uninformed rhetoric and claims thrown around on all sides of the energy discussions are reductive and unhelpful. We'll be relying entirely on the best available science from the best available sources--the EIA, the IEA, etc. There's no agenda here besides making the American public better informed about what actually happens "beyond the light switch." I strongly suspect that advocates on all sides of the conventional/renewable/nuclear debates will be at least a little frustrated with the realities of this very large and very difficult challenge that we expose -- which is how we've done it right!
keep it fair and balanced......cheap energy has been the most important factor in American"s admired lifestyles. alternative energy can complement fossil fuels at the present time but the payoff is decades away.
Amazing, this is so needed. Kudos for the initiative.
Thanks so much, Christopher! That is definitely something we'd take into consideration in the future. For now we want to really nail this interactive version, which will itself have lots and lots of shorter "explainer" videos in it.
Great project. I would love to see this book made into movie form as well.
