We are on the cusp of a third industrial revolution — one that could either mean economic collapse, or whole world revitalization. Economist Jeremy Rifkin says that green energy is the key to our survival, and he has a five–point plan to get the world running on sustainable energy. Jeremy Rifkin is the author of 19 books, including "The End Of Work," "The Biotech Century" and "The Empathic Civilization." He's an adviser to the European Union, a senior lecturer at the Wharton School and the president of the Foundation on Economic Trends in Washington, DC. His new book is "The Third Industrial Revolution: How Lateral Power Is Transforming Energy, The Economy And The World."


Jeremy Rifkin is president of the Foundation on Economic Trends and the author of 17 best–selling books on the impact of scientific and technological changes on the economy, the workforce, society and the environment.
