The Big Switch
In The Big Switch, Saul Griffith shows how Australia can save money and lead the world in fighting climate change: we need to electrify everything.
In this short, practical and deeply engaging book, Griffith explains exactly what it would take to transform our infrastructure, update our grid, and adapt our households to renewable energy. Starting with a print run of 10,000 copies, The Big Switch has the potential to change the national conversation, with a significant media campaign beginning this week.
Are you frustrated by Australia’s inaction on climate change? The Big Switch is the book you and your readers need. It’s optimistic, persuasive and contains a trove of new information and thinking.
‘The point is, we don’t have to be perfect to solve climate change. We just need to be electric. If we go hard and go early on cutting emissions – and if by so doing we encourage other countries to increase their ambition and follow us – we have everything to win … Lower energy prices for all Australians. Driving our vehicles will be cheaper than it has ever been. Heating our homes and our showers will be cheaper too. The average household will probably save $5000 a year or more on energy and car expenses.’
