Review

"Goodstein provides a good nonscientific account of the global climate change problem that is an informative read for nonscience audiences at all levels." —Choice


"Fighting for Love is a passionate assertion of the power of the interconnection of the natural world. Blending science, economics and personal reflections--he urges us to consider our very love of the natural world as a key weapon in our fight to save it. But the book is more than lofty notions about love and the linking of things. Goodstein's practical side shines throughout, too, especially in his exhortation that we must stabilize emissions and invest tens of billions in clean-energy technologies sooner than later. It's too late to avoid "lower end" warming, he writes, so the cause now is to avoid catastrophic warming. Indeed, he believes avoiding this is the key challenge for those living at this point in history. Goodstein's optimism is not as divorced from reality; he understands that victory will require political leadership, global catch-up, governmental structures and nonstop citizen involvement in the political process. What's most refreshing about Fighting for Love is the fact that the author has responded to his own call for action and is now serving as project director for Focus the Nation, an educational initiative with the goal of holding a "nationwide discussion" on January 31, 2008 about global warming solutions. Goodstein has been traveling the country, coordinating colleges and high schools, generally getting people geared up for a fight to save the future." —Sacramento Weekly


"The author offers a realistic, ambitious, and hopeful political solution to avoid a century of mass extinction, a vision grounded in a moral view that embraces the interconnection of all life forms on the planet." —Abstracts of Public Administration, Development, and Environment


“Fighting for Love radiates with Eban Goodstein's genuine awe at the exquisite interconnectedness of our natural world. It focuses our attention on our spiritual connections with all forms of life. And it encourages us to engage in the rough and tumble realities of American politics. This book moves Goodstein from being a pied-piper of the climate movement to one of its prophets.”—Ross Gelbspan, author, The Heat Is On and Boiling Point

Review

“Eban Goodstein is a great hero in the fight against global warming, hard at work years before it was popular. This book―packed with anecdote, statistic, and most of all insight―makes clear why his work has been so consistently effective in reaching both the heart and the mind of a broad swath of the American public.” (Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature and Wandering Home)

“The author is an economist but the message is directed, first, to the heart. Eban Goodstein has the sequence right in this powerful and timely book: we won't save what we do not love and we are not likely to love unless we first experience the wonder of nature. And the time to act is now.” (David Orr, Paul Sears Distinguished Professor of Environmental Studies, Oberlin College)
