"Truly, what a fantastic, timely, important book!"
— Paul Hawken, author of Blessed Unrest and Drawdown

"I cannot overstate the importance of Bruce King’s book at this critical time. We know that in order to effectively address climate change, we must go beyond building operations and address embodied carbon — phasing out carbon emissions in building materials and construction by mid-century; this book illustrates how."
— Edward Mazria, Founder / CEO Architecture 2030

"That same carbon atom that’s wreaking havoc in the atmosphere is a building block for many great traditional and new building materials. The New Carbon Architecture shows us how in ways that are both practical and imaginative — truly a resource for our times."
— Nadav Malin, President, BuildingGreen, Inc.

"Bruce King provides a valuable and unique reference for understanding how one-fifth of all carbon emissions from buildings are currently not being counted or even comprehended. Understanding embodied energy and incorporating it into design thinking and product development is the next frontier for green building practice. I recommend this book as a primer for anyone interested in combatting global climate change via building science."
— Jerry Yudelson, PE, LEED Fellow “The Godfather of Green” — Wired Magazine  Author/Keynote Speaker/Sustainability Consultant

"In The New Carbon Architecture, Bruce King delivers an emergent template for designing buildings in a future of climate uncertainty. The climate clock is ticking and we urgently need the ideas King and his colleagues present if we are to ensure comfort, safety, and resiliency in our next-gen built environment. The litany of “no regrets practices” King offers provides both adaptation and mitigation benefits in an industry not well known for offering either."
— David A. Schaller, retired EPA climate and sustainability coordinator

"Bruce King and his crew of knowledgeable, enthusiastic authors have given us a great starting point for designing and (re-)creating our built environment. This is an important book for the entire design industry to read; from industrial designers and chemists to natural building craftspeople. It gives us all a starting point for the transformation of our infrastructure into one that is truly sustainable and healthy — while reducing the quantity of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere by simply using them as building blocks instead of emitting them. All this, and they show us that we can have fun doing it!”
