Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Non-Fiction, 2014

Reissued on the 10th anniversary of its publication, this classic work on our environmental crisis features a new introduction by the author, reviewing both the progress and ground lost in the fight to save the Earth.

This impassioned plea for radical and life-renewing change is today still considered a groundbreaking work in environmental studies. McKibben's argument that the survival of the globe is dependent on a fundamental, philosophical shift in the way we relate to nature is more relevant than ever. McKibben writes of our Earth's environmental cataclysm, addressing such core issues as the greenhouse effect, acid rain, and the depletion of the ozone layer. His new introduction addresses some of the latest environmental issues that have risen during the 1990s.

More than simply a handbook for survival or a doomsday catalog of scientific prediction, this classic, soulful lament on nature is required reading for nature enthusiasts, activists, and concerned citizens alike.

Brillant

At times the science went over my head but I stuck in there (occansionaly skipping back just to try figure it all out again) and I'm so glad I did. The build up to McKibbens conclusion is brillant, scary, thought provoking and touching. This audio book really has allowed me to approach my surroundings in a deeper more meaningful way!
