Mark Pendergrast is an independent scholar and author of six nonfiction books (and one funny children's book). He lives in Colchester, Vermont. His books include JAPAN'S TIPPING POINT; INSIDE THE OUTBREAKS; MIRROR MIRROR; UNCOMMON GROUNDS; VICTIMS OF MEMORY; FOR GOD, COUNTRY AND COCA-COLA.
JAPAN'S TIPPING POINT is a small book on a huge topic. In the post-Fukushima era, Japan is the "canary in the coal mine" for the world. Can Japan radically shift its energy policy, become greener, more self-sufficient, and avoid catastrophic impacts on the climate? Mark Pendergrast arrived in Japan exactly two months after the Fukushima meltdown. This book is his eye-opening account.
