A Practical Approach to Active Environmentalism
About the Book
The western world has become preoccupied with the concern of global warming, climate change, and pollution which threaten life on Earth as we know it. The finger of blame is pointed at an ever-increasing population that is “addicted to oil” and emitting greenhouse gases at a rate that will send global warming past the tipping point. However when discussion ensues on the subject, deep divisions become quite apparent among the different viewpoints on this issue; all claiming to have the “science” to support their position. As a result, politics has become a major influence in how the science of global warming is interpreted. The goal of this book is to take politics out of the debate and present objectively just the science so the reader can have a broader and more balanced view of the issue than what he/she hears from politicians, colleagues, and the news media.
