Stop Global Warming: The Solution Is You! Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Time magazine has declared global warming a planetary emergency, adding to the calls of a huge chorus of scientists that there is only a little time left to save our planet. Stop Global Warming turns headlines into action, providing testimony of leading environmental activist Laurie David's own grassroots efforts to sound the alarm for the American people and showing how and why others (particularly young people) must get involved in this most pressing issue. In accessible and inspiring prose, David explains how global warming is personally impacting everyone's lives, not at some intangible time in the future, but right now. David points out that governments don't change until the people demand it, which is why citizens can and must make a difference by becoming activists themselves. Interspersed throughout the text, short statements by Virtual Marchers such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Walter Cronkite, Tenacious D, Senator John McCain, Governor Schwarzenegger, surfer Laird Hamilton and many, many more, show that this is a moral issue affecting everyone, transcending age, gender, and political classification. Stop Global Warming features a humorous foreword by Laurie's husband, comedian Larry David, and an afterword by Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Review:

"[A] serious, impassioned book that is a plea to help build a movement to stop global warming." BuzzFlash

Synopsis:

Global warming has become the most important issue for the future of our planet, dominating news headlines and policy discussions. Stop Global Warming! turns headlines into action, providing testimony of leading environmental activist Laurie David's own passionate work and showing how and why others (particularly young people) should get involved in this and other environmental issues.

In accessible and inspiring prose, David explains that global warming is not an opinion but a scientific reality, one that policy makers by and large have failed to address. Interspersed throughout the text, short statements by celebrities such as John Mayer, Jack Johnson, and average Americans will reinforce why halting global warming is so important to our future.

An important book that will cause you to think more about our planet and change your habits, Stop Global Warming! is required reading for the 21st century.

Synopsis:

Required reading for the preservation of the 21st century, Stop Global Warming is an important book that will bring out the activist in everyone and inspire all who read it to do something about the most urgent issue facing our planet.

About the Author

Laurie David is the founder of StopGlobalWarming.org, the Virtual March to Stop Global Warming. This internet campaign was launched one year ago with Senator John McCain, a Republican, and Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a Democrat. A trustee of the Natural Resources Defense Council, she is the creator of the award-winning comedy special Earth to America!, and is a producer of the recent documentaries An Inconvenient Truth (airing in theaters in summer 2006) and Too Hot Not to Handle (airing on HBO). David has appeared on Oprah to discuss the issue of global warming, and has been profiled recently in the New York Times, People, Glamour, Vogue, Seed magazine, Wired, House and Garden, Vanity Fair, and Outside magazine. She was named one of the "25 global warming heroes and warriors" by Rolling Stone magazine, and she was the first ever guest editor for Elle, the country's largest fashion magazine, in its May 2006 "Green Issue." Before devoting all of her time to the environment, David was a talent coordinator for The David Letterman Show and manager of some of the country's top comedians. She lives in Los Angeles, California, with her husband, Larry David.
