Climate Change Denial: Heads in the Sand

Climate Change Denial: Heads in the Sand Hadyn Washington and John Cook
'Ignorance of science is one blockade to effective action on the human predicament. But corporate-financed disinformation campaigns, such as that claiming that climate disruption is a hoax, are equally important. This excellent short book will help solve both those problems.' Paul R. Ehrlich, co-author of Humanity on a Tightrope 'Climate Change Denial reveals the crossroads we face as a society: do we let denial and confusion continue to derail solutions, leaving us vulnerable to runaway climate change, or do we accept reality and forge a truly sustainable path for future generations?' James Hoggan, author of Climate Cover-Up and president of DeSmogBlog 'This is a major contribution to the growing body of well-reasoned analyses of climate change denial. It's a must read for anyone interested in understanding the tactics used by the "denial industry" to attack scientific evidence of anthropogenic climate change.' Riley E. Dunlap, Regents Professor of Sociology, Oklahoma State University 'Climate Change denial is the biggest single obstacle to achieving a sustainable future. This book provides all the evidence and arguments you need to counter the campaign of misinformation. Read it, study it and spread its message widely.' Ian Lowe, Emeritus Professor, School of Science, Griffith University and President of the Australian Conservation Foundation 'The climate denial industry has worked effectively for years, hidden in the shadows, doing their dirty work of misleading the public, misrepresenting the science of climate change, and helping to condemn the world to now unavoidable and rapidly escalating climate disruption. No more: Washington and Cook shine a bright light on the charlatans, organizations, and funders behind the climate denial industry and on their tricks and tactics. While climate deniers are unlikely to disappear entirely, this clear and compelling book will make it easier for the general public to see through their tricks, and more likely that the world will move faster to take action on the most urgent environmental problem we have ever faced.' Dr. Peter Gleick, hydroclimatologist, Member US National Academy of Sciences, MacArthur Fellow, President, Pacific Institute 'A refusal to accept valid scientific findings is a growing problem, and not only regarding global warming, although especially serious there. Washington and Cook offer the best available guide to recognizing and combating such denial.

The Next Sustainability Wave: Building Boardroom Buy-in (Conscientious Commerce)

The Next Sustainability Wave: Building Boardroom Buy-in (Conscientious Commerce)Bob Willard
The idea of sustainability has been embraced enthusiastically by some businesses and rejected by others. The first wave of corporate converts to sustainability was perhaps driven by a public relations crisis, regulatory pressures or the founder?s personal passion. The next wave, however, requires different drivers if it is to build a critical mass for corporate responsibility in the business community.

Hot: Living Through the Next Fifty Years on Earth

Hot: Living Through the Next Fifty Years on EarthMark Hertsgaard
Mark Hertsgaard investigated climate change, but it took the birth of his daughter to bring the truth home. Another revelation came when an expert advised that, without doubt, global warming had arrived, more than a hundred years earlier than expected. Now, with his daughter and the next generation in mind, Hertsgaard delivers a resounding, motivating message of hope that will spur activism among parents, college students, and all readers. He gives specifics about what we can expect in the next fifty years: Chicago?s climate transformed to resemble Houston?s; the loss of cherished crops and luxuries, such as California wines; the redesign of U.S. cities.

World on the Edge: How to Prevent Environmental and Economic CollapseLester Russell Brown
In this urgent time, World on the Edge calls out the pivotal environmental issues and how to solve them now. We are in a race between political and natural tipping points.

Can we raise water productivity fast enough to halt the depletion of aquifers and avoid water-driven food shortages? Can we cope with peak water and peak oil at the same time? These are some of the issues Lester R. Brown skillfully distills in World on the Edge. Bringing decades of research and analysis into play, he provides the responses needed to reclaim our future.
