From the Inside Flap
While everything appears to be collapsing around us -- ecodamage, genetic engineering, virulent diseases, the end of cheap oil, water shortages, global famine, wars -- we can still do something about it and create a world that will work for us and for our children's children. The inspiration for Leonardo DiCaprio's web movie Global Warning, The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight details what is happening to our planet, the reasons for our culture's blind behavior, and how we can fix the problem. Thom Hartmann's comprehensive book, originally published in 1998, has become one of the fundamental handbooks of the environmental activist movement. Now, with fresh, updated material and a focus on political activism and its effect on corporate behavior, The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight helps us understand--and heal--our relationship to the world, to each other, and to our natural resources.

>>How can we be so narrow-minded, insidious, and cruel?
>>And, why aren't we collectively aware of these problems and working assiduously to repair them?
Hartmann is one of the few who gets the big picture. Energy, politics, economy, ecology, resources, spirituality, culture--he shows how they're all interconnected, how we've strayed horribly off course, the dreadful consequences that society faces, and what we urgently must do to restore hope for future generations of humanity.
This is a great introduction to the real world for someone who's just starting to think about these issues, and a great resource and recapitulation for those who are well-versed in the global mess.
Essential reading for everyone.
Excellent work, I am truly affected by this book, and it inspires me to spread the word and encourage all those I come into contact with, to either read it, or at least seriously rethink the inane material we fill our time/heads with. It's time to evolve our thinking, yesterday! I can't wait to receive his other book, The Prophet's Way, which is on its way to me as we speak. He is a very thought provoking author, with great insight and much to offer our generation.
Hartmann is a fabulous author, writing on diverse subjects -- political, social, historical, spiritual, ADD, depression -- all superbly written and fascinating reads.
Thom Hartman was integral to assisting DiCaprio in a film called The 11th Hour - see video link below
