The Industrial Revolution, powered by oil and other fossil fuels, is spiraling into a dangerous endgame. The price of gas and food are climbing, unemployment remains high, the housing market has tanked, consumer and government debt is soaring, and the recovery is slowing. Facing the prospect of a second collapse of the global economy, humanity is desperate for a sustainable economic game plan to take us into the future. Here, Jeremy Rifkin explores how Internet technology and renewable energy are merging to create a powerful "Third Industrial Revolution." He asks us to imagine hundreds of millions of people producing their own green energy in their homes, offices, and factories, and sharing it with each other in an "energy internet," just like we now create and share information online. Rifkin describes how the five-pillars of the Third Industrial Revolution will create thousands of businesses, millions of jobs, and usher in a fundamental reordering of human relationships, from hierarchical to lateral power, that will impact the way we conduct commerce, govern society, educate our children, and engage in civic life. Rifkin's vision is already gaining traction in the international community. The European Union Parliament has issued a formal declaration calling for its implementation, and other nations in Asia, Africa, and the Americas, are quickly preparing their own initiatives for transitioning into the new economic paradigm. The Third Industrial Revolution is an insider's account of the next great economic era, including a look into the personalities and players — heads of state, global CEOs, social entrepreneurs, and NGOs — who are pioneering its implementation around the world.

The black despair that I had felt that morning came back to me. It was sicker and huger and more terribly unreal as the information was finally brought to light, dug out of the flight recorders of the three Wrens. "Wing wrack failure; inertialess lapse at critical point; the rotors ripped off; the craft destroyed. How can that be?" The Doctor's voice was strange, muffled, his words full of pain and puzzlement. His head was shaking as he went over the details of the three wrecked craft, "How could they all suffer exactly the same fault at almost exactly the same time; all at once? I don't understand it." I heard the quiet tread of the Master as he turned away from the portal and came towards us over the empty floor. I knew then that I would never get another chance. In my left hand I snatched a spare magazine, in my right I scooped up the heavy pistol from where the Doctor had laid it before he sat down. I took three swift paces away from the Doctor so he couldn't intervene and pointed the weapon straight at the Master. "Who are you?" I asked coldly, my eyes steady along the sights.
