This is a must read for anyone and everyone that lives on this little rock that we call Earth. It is well researched, and for me has opened up my thinking to a few practical yet very important facts concerning our carbon problems. One idea that I was not aware of is the importants of localisation when it came to food production and energy. The author makes it clear that much harm has been already done to our Earth. This is why he refers to this small rock in space as Eaarth. What he does is not ring his hands, but show what can be done on Eaarth as it is today. Much can be done! All should read this book.

The chapters on the audio version are not in chronological order or labeled. Don't buy it. The content however is fantastic and highly recommended as long as it's not the audio book version

McKibben sets out is argument in a logical and rational way, giving insight and clarity to complex issues, depressing at times (naturally!) but empowering all the same. Following on from his Deep Economy work, this book offers glimpses of how we might change our behaviour as the world around us shifts. It's impossible to walk in a wood after absorbing these words and not feel a different sensitivity to the other species we live amongst.

This book gives me hope. Hope that what we have worked so hard to destroy in the last hundred years is retrievable. Maybe not in any form we now recognise, but it is possible!
