Storms of my grandchildren : the truth about the coming climate catastrophe and our last chance to save humanity by James E Hansen( Book )

21 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and Malay and held by 1,800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Storms of My Grandchildren, Dr. James Hansen--the nation's leading scientist on climate issues--speaks out for the first time with the full truth about global warming: The planet is hurtling even more rapidly than previously acknowledged to a climatic point of no return. Although the threat of human-caused climate change is now widely recognized, politicians have failed to connect policy with the science, responding instead with ineffectual remedies dictated by special interests. Hansen shows why President Obama's solution, cap-and-trade, which Al Gore signed on to, won't work; why we must phase out all coal; and why 350 parts per million of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is a goal we must achieve if our children and grandchildren are to avoid global meltdown and the horrific storms of the book's title"--Page 2 of cover

"[This film] explores the inextricable link between the energy we use, the way we run our economy, and the multiplying threats that now confront the environmental health and stability of our planet. Taking as its starting point the inevitable energy depletion scenario known as "Peak Oil," the film surveys a fascinating range of the latest intellectual, political, and scientific thought to make the case that by whatever means of greed, wishful thinking, neglect, or ignorance, we now find ourselves at a disturbing crossroads: we can continue to burn fossil fuels and witness the collapse of our ecology, or we can choose not to and witness the collapse of our economy."--Container

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a book of photographs of environmental disasters occurring at different points in the consumer/industrial cycle, which illustrate the negative impact our contemporary consumer society has on the planetary systems that sustain our existence ... Essays written by some of the top writers, scientists, and environmentalisets of our day punctuate the images. They were asked to write personal memoirs with an environmental focus, and the results range from hilarious to heart-wrenching. At the end is an appendix with more information about each image and a graphic representation of the environmental impact seen therein. The objective of these pictures is not to vilify any given company or industry -- there are good and bad actors everywhere. My intent is to engage the viewer, stimlulate curiosity, and encourage dialog"--Introduction, p. 7
