Book Description

What kind of world will our children have to deal with in the future?
The World Bank recently released their report on climate change titled, “Turn Down the Heat”, which suggests that unless human beings take action to reduce their impact on Mother Earth, the world is likely to be warmer by more than 4°C (7.2°F) in the next hundred years. This will not be the end. Further warming of over 6°C (10.8°F) will follow in the centuries to come.
This warmer world will be radically different from ours. The heat waves of today, such as the 2010 heat wave that struck Russia killing 55,000 people and destroying 25% of their harvest, will be the new norm. Extreme weather patterns which cause dry areas to get drier and wet areas wetter, will proliferate. Rising sea levels could put a hundred million people at risk of coastal flooding every year. Perhaps worst of all, within forty years, global warming could leave us with less food per person.
This book is a call to action. Sadhguru, the founder of Isha Foundation and the massive environmental movement Project GreenHands, outlines the role that individuals, corporates and governments can play in controlling and reversing ecological degradation. Making it clear that “when it comes to ecological work, it is not somebody’s work, it is everybody’s work,” Sadhguru links the responsibilities of people, business and governance to address the problem with both short-term action as well as long-term vision.

5.0 out of 5 stars A timely book January 26, 2013
By JC
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is short but I guess that's the beauty of it.
It succinctly captures the state of the environment today, and also the state of our efforts to save it. It looks at what's needed to rectify the situation and makes a very valid point that whatever efforts are made, nothing is going to change unless the developed world changes over to more sustainable lifestyle (thankfully this is beginning to happen in Europe), and the rest of the world cuts back on population growth.
But most of all, the book is a very inspirational, "to the heart" communication from Sadhguru. He describes the efforts that his environmental NGO has been taking over the past few years, and it is quite a moving essay. Hopefully, more people will read this book and act before it's too late.

4.0 out of 5 stars Relevant to our times December 9, 2012
By Sumitra
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In a world where anyone and everyone is writing e-books, this one comes as a refreshing change. It's short, crisp and to the point. Tells us what's wrong and what is being done to fix it. The amount of work that's being done towards planting trees is quite phenomenal.

An initiative like this is what every city in the world needs. While this e-book is great because it tells us how we can contribute to helping the environment through Isha Foundation's initiative, it would be wonderful if they also tell us how their project can be replicated in other cities and countries. Perhaps that is what can save our world!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rise to the occasion! December 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really liked this short yet meaningful book packed with startling insight and pragmatic wisdom.

Global warming and climate change are always in the news these days. But most of
the focus is always on international conferences. Nobody talks about how an individual can make a
difference. This book stands out because it details the role an individual can play, not in magically fixing
the problem by planting a tree, but by coming together and putting pressure on the governments and
businesses to act.
I think that's quite a realistic possibility when you look at the Occupy movements and
the Egypt & Syria uprising going on. If enough people care to create a better future, why shouldn't it
happen?

I give it 5 stars for the importance of the message and highlighting the role that an individual can play.
Insightful and engaging.

5.0 out of 5 stars There's a few thousand trees being cut every second December 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I would like to start with what disturbed me the most when I read in the book. 15 million trees are cut every day. That's about 10,000 a second! All those dying trees combined with global warming, el nino, la nina and whatever else, it doesn't seem like there's much hope. But maybe there is. The author makes a good point when he says that the ecology is everybody's business. If each person plants a few trees and governments and businesses act more responsibly, the planet can recover.
