A renowned scientist restores hope for a better future with his latest views on environmental challenges.

In this latest offering from David Suzuki, the well-known scientist, author, and broadcaster explores the interconnectedness of the world''s myriad environmental challenges. The solutions are there, he argues; we just need the will to act together to bring about change.

Suzuki delves into such provocative topics as the difference between human hunters and other predators, our dependence on the sun, and what we must learn from Japan''s recent reactor meltdown. He also doesn''t avoid controversial opinion, especially when it comes to taking on those who stand in the way of resolving serious issues like climate change.

Everything Under the Sun includes telling facts and stats, the latest scientific findings, and examples of the positive actions people are taking today toward protecting what we have. Underpinning it all is the recognition that Earth gives us everything we require to live, under a sun that provides the energy to produce food, transport, and all of our modern conveniences.
