About this title

Synopsis:

"This is an unabashed call to each and every American to moral duty for the future of life on earth," begins National Wildlife Federation president and CEO Larry J. Schweiger in this stirring exposé and call to action. Speaking to us not just as a conservation leader but also as an outdoor lover and a parent, Schweiger describes the causes and effects of global warming on our wildlife, ecosystems, and human life as we know it.

With an engaging, down-to-earth tone (and a dash of wit; e.g., "What Happens in Greenland Will Not Stay in Greenland"), Schweiger breaks down the science behind our looming environmental catastrophe. Not letting go of hope, he also offers practical solutions and proposes a plan of action for everyday citizens. Last Chance will inspire each of us to take part in restoring the vital connection to our natural world before it's too late.

Larry J. Schweiger is president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation, the United States' largest conservation organization. He also serves as co-chair of the board of directors of the Alliance for Climate Protection and has received many awards for his conservation efforts, including the Distinguished Service Award from the National Wildlife Federation and the Conservation Service Award from the Christian Environmental Association.
