NEW YORK (AP) – Billionaire businessman-environmentalist Tom Steyer has a book out this spring that combines personal and professional stories for a guide on how to battle climate change.

“Cheaper, Faster, Better: How We’ll Win the Climate War” will be published May 28, Spiegel & Grau announced Wednesday. In his book, Steyer urges action from investors, policymakers and the general public.

“I first became a “˜climate person’ on a 2006 trip to Alaska with my family,” Steyer said in a statement. “I wanted them to see how beautiful and powerful the untouched American landscape can be. Except there was one problem – Alaska was melting. The vast glacial expanse that I admired on my first visit there in 1981 had completely disappeared.

“From that point on, I’ve dedicated my time, resources and energy to helping America win the climate war.”

Steyer, who sought the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, is the co-founder of Galvanize Climate Solutions and founder of the progressive policy and voter organization NextGen America.
