(Continued)

Don’t take my word for it. Do as Barbara Kingsolver pleads and read the book by Bill McKibben titled “Eaarth.” It’s probably our last warning written for general audiences and written graciously and with extensive data. Indeed, McKibben is far more gracious than most in his arguments.

Personally, I tend toward the arguments of Derrick Jensen, but McKibben’s provide the best recipe for widescale application if we are to transform ourselves before it’s way too late.

It’s already too late to salvage Earth as we knew it; we need to learn to live on this new planet called Eaarth — if we heed the alarms to wake up.

My thanks to Ray Johnson for his efforts.
