The "Renewable Deal" is the continuously evolving masterwork of tireless, brilliant, lifelong environmental activist Richard Lance Christie. This comprehensive plan for the transformation of American social, technological, agricultural, industrial and economic policy and practice, is entirely based upon existing, off-the-shelf technology that can be deployed immediately--if only we have the vision and will to act.

This document is and will always be a work in progress. Some of the primary supporting background chapters and subchapters are still in development. Our current target completion date for the majority of the supporting documentation is mid-February 2009.

This masterwork of synthesis is only an example--but surely the best possible example--both of the style and caliber of integrated thinking that humanity desperately needs in order to survive the onrushing global environmental crisis, and also of the awesome potential of individual initiative.
