5.0 out of 5 stars In a league of its own, April 7 2009

This review is from: Hell and High Water: Climate Change, Hope and the Human Condition (Paperback)
For those who can digest the truth about climate change if it is served on a platter of hope, here is a book which stands in a league of its own on the mountaintop. In a remarkable synthesis of science, humanitarianism and spirituality, Alastair McIntosh's Hell and High Water may well be the most holistic presentation to date on the challenges rapidly converging on our doorstep.

Knowing at least some of Alastair's activist work, in his native Scotland as well as internationally, he brings to mind a combination of Wendell Berry, Ivan Illich and Mahatma Gandhi. In addition, while writing Hell and High Water, he seems like a mad archaeologist with an oversized shovel digging for clues to help him better understand our present predicament; in the process he churned up an impressive amount of ground. The roadmap he draws for the future is a refreshing addition to other writers' proposed solutions.
