About Jigar Shah, Contributor to “Renewable Energy Facts and Fantasies” from the Carbon War Room

The Carbon War Room’s CEO, Jigar Shah, contibuted to the book’s chapter on Free Market Capitalism. Founded by British industrialist and humanitarian Richard Branson, the Carbon War Room uses the principles of laissez-faire capitalism to deal with the problems brought about by our planet’s addiction to fossil fuels. The organization points out, “Our global industrial and energy systems are built on carbon-based technologies and unsustainable resource demands that threaten to destroy our society and our planet. Massive loss of wealth, expanding poverty and suffering, disastrous climate change, water scarcity, and deforestation are the end results of this broken system. This business-as-usual system represents the greatest threat to the security and prosperity of humanity – a threat that transcends race, ethnicity, national borders, and ideology.”
