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
If you have ever wondered how the world and it's people managed to get into the situation they are now in,
this is probably one of the best books to read to help you understand, "What the heck happened?"
This is not only an informative book, it is a practical book, in that it offers some solutions to many of the world's continuing problems. Although some might say that Thom is more optimistic than is warranted, considering the dimensions of the world's problems. And I certainly understand how some may say that, but I too share Thom's general optimism. The world is going thru 'a bad patch', (to put it mildly) and it can look a little dark & dismal at times. Like Thom, I do think there
is a multi-faceted, dare I use the word 'awakening' going on. More of a remembrance, than anything new. (Nothing is new under the sun.) But the remembrance will definitely lead to a better and saner world if a sufficient number of people
begin to understand, as Einstein said, "The world we have made, as a result of the level of thinking we have done thus far, creates problems we cannot solve at the same level of thinking at which we created them."
Which means we have to take a Leap into what looks like unknown territory, but turns out to be the only way out of
the mistaken thinking which put us in this box that looks like it has No Exit. When in truth, there is an Exit, and Thom points the way out, at least one of the ways. Many people seem to be heading in the same positive direction, and they are coming from very diverse quarters, from widely varying backgrounds & perspectives. (And it does not take that many
right-minded people to change the world significantly, although you may think otherwise?)
Thom Hartmann is one of those people heading in a positive direction. He is a breath of fresh air in all the unrelenting bad news that is constantly bombarding our ears, and sometimes even our eyes. If you want a fresh point of view, I rec'd,
"The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight". It could change your life, or at least your outlook.
