This book is about pressing global environmental issues that impinge on most
human beings but which often are not recognised by us. It shows the linkages to
our homes and our lives and suggests how we can make a difference. Improving
our understanding is only the initial step before ACTING for we cannot afford
to be indifferent bystanders. We ALL have roles while we recognise the roles
of other actors.
Statements coming from the scientific community of late point to very imminent
adverse impacts from global warming in the near future. So is there concern about
the extinction of many living species and global shortages in water availability.
The book also describes other major environmental threats. But individuals
(EVERYWHERE) can make positive changes, rather than wailing!
Must-read chapters on how to achieve climate bliss in the book include: What a
Climate Mess, All Dollars and No Sense, What s Your Poison, A Flickering Hope,
The Unwillingness to Sacrifice and many important environmental issues.
