Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Etonnant très original 19 mars 2013
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
mais se répète parfois limite du rêve (il raconte par exemple que le PDG de Mercedes a promis à Merkel la sortie de pile à combustible appuyée sur un réseau d'alimentation pour 2013). Il parle beaucoup de lui plus que des faits. Avantage cependant de sortir des "pensées en rond"

Encore une fois, Rifkin semble avoir réussi à voir avant tout les autres la façon dont le système semble prendre la tournure. Avec des touches d'optimisme, il nous éclaircis sur ce changement, La 3eme révolution industrielle. A lire absolument.

un livre qui laisse des traces..
jeremy rifkin commence par faire un etat des lieux de notre planete (bien malade, menacant l'extinction de notre espece) et propose une solution, peut etre la seule: la troixieme revolution industrielle - un reseau energetique planetaire, similaire a l'internet, ou chacun a sa contribution a la production mondiale.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Thought-Provoking Look at the Future 28 septembre 2011
Par Jeff D. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
"The Third Industrial Revolution" offers a fascinating look at Jeremy Rifkin's views on the future of energy and the economy. Rifkin believes we are on the verge of a new industrial revolution that will transform the economy and society in a similar way to the major changes that occurred in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Rifkin's "third" industrial revolution is based on "five pillars:" (1) A general shift to renewable energy. (2) Micro-generation of clean energy in homes, offices and other buildings. (3) Hydrogen and other forms of energy storage in homes and throughout the economy (4) an "Internet-like" smart energy grid that would allow individuals to generate power and then distribute it, and (5) Conversion of transportation away from fossil fuels to electric plug-in or hydrogen fuel cells.

While the book contains a lot of insightful analysis, I think it gives short shrift to the problem of jobs. Technology and globalization are increasingly destroying well-paid opportunities for workers in developed countries. The book does discuss this, but only in the very last few pages. This is surprising because, of course, Rifkin wrote a book about this issue in the 1990s ("The End of Work"). Now, however, he seems to buy into the more conventional view that green jobs will solve the problem of unemployment.

I'm doubtful of that. Technologies like artificial intelligence and robotics are accelerating and will soon have a dramatic impact. Advancing technology will also make offshoring of high wage jobs a bigger and bigger problem in the West.

"The Third Industrial Revolution" offers many good ideas, but I think it ultimately falls short of answering the question on many peoples' minds: How will average people in developed countries like the United States make an adequate living (and keep pace with the cost of living) while competing with both technology and globalization? That is a critical question because if households are focused on individual survival, it will be very difficult to amass political support for the energy and climate change policies Rifkin advocates. For a strong analysis of the jobs/income issue and some solutions, also read "The Lights in the Tunnel."

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Re Re Repeats itself to make it long enough 13 novembre 2011
Par Matthew G. Deboard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This book is good, but it's definitely verbose, as it repeats the same concepts over and over again. There is no doubt that the author is well versed in the subject matter, both in breadth and depth, but there is only so much one can espouse about the transformation of modern society from a fossil-fuel based economy to a renewable-energy based economy. Yes, Europe is way ahead of the United States in achieving the 5 factors that will successfully transform society into the Third Industrial Revolution - we get it. Oh, you want to make the point again? O.K. - got it. Again? Really? There is no need to study that concept ad-nauseum from every conceivable angle. For the layperson, this book is a little much. I think I put it down permanently about midway through... Wait a month and buy it used in order to save yourself some $$'s and thus form your own mini economic revolution.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Vision 24 octobre 2011
Par Jason W. Stone - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I heard an interview with him and was really inspired. So, I got this book. Well, the interview was Great. The book isn't. His vision and ideas are really compelling. I hope I see it all come to pass. However, I couldn't finish the book. It is mostly a chronicle of all the discussions that have happened with many governments. That's all a bit dull. It will make for good history when the TIR happens.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 important content but so badly written 17 avril 2012
Par Pythagoras - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
The concepts that Rifkin puts forward are incredibly important to the future of our economy, but more importantly to combating climate change. I so want to like this book, because more people need to become familiar with these concepts. But the writing! Mr. Rifkin, it is very nice that you have had dinner with Angela Merkel, and met with many heads of state, but this does almost nothing for your narrative. It reads more like an ego trip than a description of the very important process of communicating ideas, and the development of long range plans for the implementation of those ideas. The book could be a great resource as well, but is incredibly under-footnoted, so it has very little value for further research. A real disappointment.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The TIR & Intergrid 14 novembre 2011
Par Bay Elliott - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
In addition to reading this book, if you ever have a chance to see Jeremy Rifkin present on the Third Industrial Revolution and the Intergrid, please, take that advantage (it is well worth it!). Mr. Rifkin has wonderfully distilled and delivered a compelling vision of the world ahead in a sustainable, clean, distributed and collaborative energy model. This book brings a perspective on past industrial revolutions and points to technological processes and connects many of the dots of the myriad & disparate energy technologies and how they will coalesce and be deployed in the years ahead. It is no surprise that Mr. Rifkin has been advising many global governments not only on what the vision is but how to take advantage of the economic opportunity since 2007. It remains disappointing that the political climate in the US continues to inhibit a unified energy policy... and thus puts the US at a severe competitive industrial disadvantage vis a vis countries like Germany, China, Singapore and many others that have been listening... and which understand the rich landscape of commercial opportunities ahead... and the significant detriment to those countries which aren't proactively adjusting to those threats (& opportunities) ahead. There are several books which work well as companion pieces to Rifkin's TIR: "That Used To Be Us", "Reigniting Fire" and "The Quest" are some of them. Based on documented job creation in Germany from the solar sector alone, US economists recently projected that, had the US followed a similar solar/ renewable energy vision, we would likely see over 2million related jobs created. Energy Efficiency carries its own highly compelling ROI. We have clean fuels in our labs now that have an unsubsidized cost per BTU less than that of Natural Gas, and without the carbon emissions. Coupled with the smart grid, these new technologies will allow the highly efficient energy storage that unlocks Rifkin's Intergrid: the sustainable, distributed, adaptive, interactive, renewable energy Intergrid. Rifkin's TIR & Intergrid outlines a compelling vision for the future, but one that is already dawning in labs across the world and beginning to be implemented where there are true leaders. The book drives home its points repeatedly... but the points are well worth paying attention to.
