“ELECTRIC REVOLUTION: Myths & Truths about Electric Vehicles and Climate Disaster,” an explosive new book from electric mobility entrepreneur and clean technology advocate, Aidan McClean, reveals the truth behind climate change and the role internal combustion engines and Big Oil had in affecting it.
McClean’s comprehensively researched book also exposes the myths around electric vehicles, their viability, their effect on our environment and their potential in averting climate disaster. Whether you are sceptical about man-made climate change and are a dedicated petrolhead or are a card-carrying environmentalist and already drive an electric vehicle, this book will open your eyes and your mind.
ELECTRIC REVOLUTION is essential reading for anybody interested in uncovering the reality of the most critical issue facing mankind today. McClean’s journey began with a simple test drive of a Tesla back in 2014 to satiate his curiosity about this new electric machine. In 2016, he quit corporate life to create an electric mobility company and to start his extensive research for this book.
“This book has opened my eyes to the destruction the fossil fuel industry has wreaked on our environment, climate and health over the last 100 years and the wider effect that switching to electric vehicles will have in shifting us to a cleaner, more sustainable tomorrow,” says motoring journalist, David Yu. “Electric Revolution is a well-researched and reasoned book delving into the reality behind the myths about electric vehicles. It isn’t preachy or dogmatic, it’s intelligent, factual and impassioned.”
ELECTRIC REVOLUTION is the story of our second chance and how the electric vehicle rebirth was the catalyst that began our great green transition. The pace of change, not just for automakers, but with battery technology, clean energy, carbon storage and connected technologies means that clean air mobility worldwide is now possible.
The electric revolution is happening quicker than you think. We are witnessing the birth of Generation Electric and we have a great green, clean future ahead of us.
“We are at a crucial stage in human civilization’s development,” writes ELECTRIC REVOLUTION author, Aidan McClean. “We may not survive the planet overheating due to climate change because of carbon emissions from our 200 years of fossil fuel burning frenzy.”
Aidan McClean says he learned that we are in this dire climate change situation in part because of lies and cover-ups from the hydrocarbon industry, internal combustion automakers, and vested fossil fuel interests. However, there is good news and a lot of hope.
“Over the past five years of writing this book, I have zero doubt that we are living in the middle of a rapidly accelerating electric revolution. The momentum is now unstoppable and we’re past the tipping point.
The age of internal combustion and ultimately the age of oil is at the beginning of its end. Almost every major automaker has now declared its intention to become electric.”
“If you have any doubts or believe that electric is not for you then think again. This is the equivalent of saying you would never buy a mobile phone 20 years ago. The story of the rise of Tesla and its fundamental change to the way we think about electric cars and mobility will go down in history as one of the great driving forces behind our third great industrial revolution.
The technology of the past century is no longer viable in this century. In the first 20 years of this century, we have massively increased our population, our consumption and climate pollution, however, we’ve also advanced technologies that would have seemed science fiction in the 1990s.
From the Paris Agreement to individual action and a new corporate consciousness around climate change, momentum to a bright clean future is accelerating. Despite all the negative things I’ve learned, I am filled with hope about the potential of human ingenuity and ideas combined with passion and the necessity to solve our future.”
“The future is bright. On a clean, fresh, bright sunny day sometime later this century, your grandchildren will walk down a city street and as they walk, near-silent, clean, autonomous transport vehicles will drive past them. The glass on buildings will be converting sunlight into energy, micro static wind generation will be installed on rooftops, every store, office building and restaurant will be near energy self-sustainable and not relying on legacy power plants.
The stories from their grandparents about how streets were filled with poisonous air from inefficient fossil fuel burning machines and how the lights were powered by burning coal and oil, threatening the survival of life on our planet, will seem like the darkest of the dark ages to them. This will be the story of our second chance and how the electric vehicle rebirth was the catalyst that began our great green transition.”
