Author(s): Thom Hartmann
While everything appears to be collapsing around us -- ecodamage, genetic engineering, virulent diseases, the end of cheap oil, water shortages, global famine, wars -- we can still do something about it and create a world that will work for us and for our children s children. The inspiration for Leonardo DiCaprio s web movie Global Warning, The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight details what is happening to our planet, the reasons for our culture s blind behavior, and how we can fix the problem. Thom Hartmann s comprehensive book, originally published in 1998, has become one of the fundamental handbooks of the environmental activist movement. Now, with fresh, updated material and a focus on political activism and its effect on corporate behavior, The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight helps us understand--and heal--our relationship to the world, to each other, and to our natural resources."
