Author's Review:

Commentary on movie
by climate scientists

Stephen Schneider
closes his book,
while describing the
many things
we can do as
individuals about
climate change:
"But most important
for me, as
grandparent, parent
and teacher, is to
hum in your head
often the lines of the
Crosby, Stills
& Nash song:
'Teach your
children well.' "

Author & climate scientist
Katharine Hayhoe
Watch end of interview,
as "newscaster" inserts
network's dictated
climate narrative
over scientific evidence,
insisting: "The Earth has
been cooling!... Cooling!"

How the Climate Crises Threatens our Health & What We Can Do About It
by Paul Epstein, MD & Dan Ferber
Reviews: 1 2    Published by University of California Press   

"The authors provide hands-on knowledge of details regarding how climate
de-stabilization has, is and will cause an increase in diseases such as cholera,
dengue fever, lyme disease and many others -- in wealthy as well as in third world
countries. For too long, the processes by which increases in temperature and rainfall
magnify epidemics has been an ignored stepchild in climate discussions, but this book
begins to remedy that sad situation." -- Dr. Richard Bailey

Bill McKibben:
Making a Life on a Tough New Planet

"Our old familiar globe is suddenly melting, drying, acidifying, flooding,
and burning in ways that no human has ever seen. We've created, in very
short order, a new planet, still recognizable but fundamentally different.
Call it eaarth. Eaarth is a manifesto on the new economic and cultural
realities on a changed planet and suggestions for the kind of change
we'll need in order to make our civilization endure."
