77 Skills To Stop Climate Change or Live Through It…

climatechangeOkay, I know it happened three days ago now and it’s a little late to comment on it, but, despite myself I enjoyed the Live Earth spectacle this weekend.

I was set to dismiss Live Earth as just another “cause of the day”, and, it may turn out to be just that, but, there were definately some musicians involved who were singing their hearts out trying to make a difference by inspiring anyone watching to take a little more care with our environment.

At the top of my list for most earnest performances were The Foo Fighters and an indie band called Nunatuk who beamed in their musical contributions from a British reasearch station in Antarctica.

How is this related to reading books?

The Live Earth Global Warming Surival Handbook, by David de Rothschild promises “77 Essential Skills to Stop Climate Change — or Live Through It”. Proceeds from sales of the book go to the Alliance for Climate Protection, founded by former U.S. vice-president Al Gore, author of An Inconvenient Truth, and The Assault on Reason. Of course, he is also one of the organizers behind the July 7, 2007 Live Earth shows. You can pick up the handbook, which is printed on environmentally-friendly paper, for $18.50 online or at a bookstore near you. Once An Inconvenient Truth is back on the shelves in my library I’ll try and give it a read and write a review. So far, my patrons’ reactions to the book have been mixed.
