What will it be like to live in the photon societies of tomorrow? How will a transition to clean, plentiful energy transform our values, markets and politics? "The Weight of Light" emphasizes that the design of solar energy matters just as much as the shift away from fossil fuels.

The book is available for free download on the Center for Science and the Imagination website or as a $4.49 print copy from Blurb.
