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 feature documentary movie The Eleventh Hour
and soon to be released HBO special Ice on Fire
, 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 is one of the fundamental handbooks of the environmental activist movement. Now with fresh, updated material on our Earth's rapid climate change 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.
