You're a Baby Boomer, in your productive and prosperous middle years. You've accumulated a reasonable nest egg of assets. You've survived the fatuous Fifties, the social revolution of the Sixties, Vietnam, Woodstock, the Reagan Era, and the end of the Cold War. Now, you are looking forward to slowing down, enjoying the empty nest, shifting into life's slow lane knowing that your life expectancy has never been so long nor your economic prospects so bright.Paul and Hazel Delcourt are paleo-ecologists and eco-futurists who teach at the University of Tennessee. They study the history of the environment in ancient times and they are keen observers of contemporary climate research. They are also Baby Boomers and avid outdoor enthusiasts. Ten Personal Strategies is based on the National Climate Assessment, a massive three-year effort involving thousands of scientists to project the probable environmental changes that will occur in every region of the United States over the next 100 years as a result of global warming. The Delcourts match evidence of these environmental changes with predictions of equally significant demographic shifts. The combination, say the authors, will cause an unprecedented social upheaval. The good news is that, with the help of this book, you can plot your personal course through the storm.Ten Personal Strategies profiles the changing weather patterns, temperature zones, storm tracks, forest cover, and habitat conditions expected as the impact of global warming becomes more tangible.The authors offer "10 best strategies" for managing your personal tolerance level for ecological and financial risk. Whether you're looking to capitalize on your entrepreneurialsavvy, or anxious to live lightly on the land in a natural house powered by renewable energy, their suggestions will appeal to your sense of enlightened self-interest across the spectrum of lifestyle choices. Finally, the Delcourts make the case that, in the greenhouse world environment, the most important legacies that Boomers can leave to future generations are habitat conservation and the preservation of vibrant biodiversity. Perhaps the Boomers will finally reverse the cultural tradition of accumulating "stuff".This is an important book offering a sobering look at our future.
