1. The case for sharply cutting U.S. greenhouse gas emissions -- Part I. Coal: a Faustian bargain with payments coming due: 2. The basis of it all: Pennsylvania in the Pennsylvanian -- 3. The air we breathe: the human costs of coal combustion -- 4. From outer space: Asia's brown cloud, and more -- Part II. Climate: the lockstep relationship between carbon dioxide and temperature: 5. The drillers -- 6. The modelers -- 7. The synthesizers -- Part III. Choices: the low-carbon and zero-carbon technologies we can deploy right now: 8. Breaking the carbon habit -- 9. Going all out for renewables, conservation, and green design -- 10. Natural gas, gasoline, and the vision of a hydrogen economy -- 11. A second look at nuclear energy -- Conclusion: How to reduce greenhouse gases now, using today's technology
