The first part of the book is about all the different ways it would happen: earthquakes, acid rain, desertification of farmland, deforestation that reducing the conversion of oxygen, etc. The book quotes other literature as proof.
But it was all unbalanced. It talked only about environmental things that were going wrong. How it was too late to make changes. That only basic native american beliefs would carry the day for the survivors. Unbalanced in that none of the environmental movements throughout the ages were listed. No mention was given to Walter Muir, Al Gore (maybe after Sun Bear's time), the Sierra Club just to name a few in the US. There is probably a billion more throughout the world. So, it didn't list non-native groups where a person could be proactive. It is about the environment going bad and proving that it would happen in his lifetime.
It is possible he never saw folks from many culture gathering to protest environmental concerns like they recently did over the pipeline at Standing Rock. There are a lot of folks interested in protecting the Earth using their own methods, some active, some passive.
It is possible that in 100 years or in a few thousand years we will make the Earth unlivable. If you think it will happen in your lifetime you may want to read this book for ideas on how to survive. Most of the ideas are limited to moving from large cities when the time comes and having emergency food and water. It contains a high level action plan listing different areas where you would need to flush out the details. You would still need a book on how to hunt, set snares, fish, identify edible plants, and grow your own.
I do plan to read another Sun Bear's book that was also recommended. Am hoping it is much better. This book is so small in thought that I almost stopped reading it permanently many times. Kept waiting for it to get better. Felt awkward about giving a review of a book that I didn't finish, so forced myself through it.
