“Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him.” – Leonardo DiCaprio
“The more of us who heed Thom Hartmann’s passionate message, the more likely it is that our highest hopes, rather than our darkest fears, will come to pass.” – John Robbins, founder of EarthSave and author of Diet for a New America
“Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change.” – Robert Greenwald (Brave New Films)
From the Inside Flap
While everything appears to be collapsing around us -- ecodamage, genetic engineering, virulent diseases, the end of cheap oil, water shortages, global famine, wars -- we can still do something about it and create a world that will work for us and for our childrens children. The inspiration for Leonardo DiCaprios web movie Global Warning, The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight details what is happening to our planet, the reasons for our cultures blind behavior, and how we can fix the problem. Thom Hartmanns comprehensive book, originally published in 1998, has become one of the fundamental handbooks of the environmental activist movement. Now, with fresh, updated material and a focus on political activism and its effect on corporate behavior, The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight helps us understand--and heal--our relationship to the world, to each other, and to our natural resources.See all Product description

I would give a more detailed or articulate description, but I lent my copy out the day I finished reading it, and several people are already waiting in line to borrow it. If there is a book to buy multiple copies of and give away, this is the best one I have found. Do not let it sit on the bookshelf indefinitely - after you read it, pass it around, from one person to another, making sure it never stays the same place, unread, for long. If you must keep a copy for your own reference, at least buy a second one to pass around to your friends.
