about

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Required Reading for the Planet Every so often you read a book that you can truly say you are a different person after reading. This is the intention and accomplishment of this book. I believe it is impossible to turn the last page and continue living the way you did before opening it. As is carefully and readably described in the first half, there are urgent and irrefutable economic and environmental threats to our lives on this planet, and our continued lives depend on individually and collectively shifting the way we see our world. The second half describes what we can do. The book is a well-written, fairly detailed distillation of a lot of science, with some very important ideas about our culture and how it needs to change. Read it, talk about it, ACT.
