Description

2009 is a critical year for the climate change movement. Flannery, one of the world’s pioneering paleontologists and biologists, offers a pragmatic roadmap of the environmental challenges we face in dealing with climate change and the potential solutions toward sustainability.

Rather than looking backward and assigning blame, Flannery offers a powerful argument for immediate action and highlights some of advancements made by wind-energy companies and automobile manufacturers to create electric cars that will end the reign of oil.
