Planet Simpson : how a cartoon masterpiece defined a generation by Chris Turner( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"D'oh - it's The Simpsons. And here's the book with the behind-the-scenes story of how America's favorite nuclear family first arrived at a TV near you, how the series grew into a worldwide icon, and who brings it to life so brilliantly week after week, year after year."--BOOK JACKET
The leap : how to survive and thrive in the sustainable economy by Chris Turner( Book )

16 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The crises in our economic system, our energy supply, and our climate are converging. Solving these crises requires a fundamental change in our frame of reference--a decisive shift not so much in technology as in technique. In The Leap, award-winning journalist Chris Turner presents a field guide to making the jump from our current system of energy supply and consumption to a sustainable model that succeeds across the socioeconomic spectrum. It is an integrated approach, one that he calls a "great leap sideways," because it is a lateral leap that anyone can make: not escaping from, but moving toward

The war on science : muzzled scientists and wilful blindness in Stephen Harper's Canada by Chris Turner( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and French and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chris Turner argues that Stephen Harper's attack on basic science, science communication, environmental regulations, and the environmental NGO community is the most vicious assault ever waged by a Canadian government on the fundamental principles of the Enlightenment. From the closure of Arctic research stations as oil drilling begins in the High Arctic to slashed research budgets in agriculture, dramatic changes to the nation's fisheries policy, and the muzzling of government scientists, Harper's government has effectively dismantled Canada's long-standing scientific tradition. Drawing on interviews with scientists whose work has been halted by budget cuts and their colleagues in an NGO community increasingly treated as an enemy of the state, The War on Science paints a vivid and damning portrait of a government that has abandoned environmental stewardship and severed a national commitment to the objective truth of basic science as old as Canada itself."--
Planet Simpson : how a cartoon masterpiece documented an era and defined a generation by Chris Turner( )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Planet Simpson is the first book to bring in-depth analysis to that most important pop-cultural institution of the last decade--Fox TV's The Simpsons---and use the show as a microcosm of the Western culture it has hilariously (and mercilessly) influenced and reflected. Planet Simpson is broken down into scathingly funny chapters analyzing each major character's relationship to different facets of the American character: from Homer, the ultimate everyman of the American century to C. Montgomery Burns, who is unchecked capitalism personified. Going well beyond a critical discussion of a single television program, this book will use The Simpsons as a window on the culture at large to deliver first-hand reportage of the defining events and trends of our accelerated, confounding era
How to breathe underwater : field reports from an age of radical change by Chris Turner( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents "a panoramic overview of this age of radical change--from the online gambling boom in the Caribbean to Cyberjaya, the Malaysian government's attempt to build its own Silicon Valley; from video game design to digital-age tabloid journalism to the artistry of The Simpsons; and from the fate of the Great Barrier Reef to Cuba's economic limbo after the fall of the Soviet empire"--Cover flap
PATCH by Chris Turner( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In its heyday, the oilsands represented an industrial triumph and the culmination of a century of innovation, experiment, engineering, policy, and finance. Fort McMurray was a boomtown, the centre of a new gold rush, and the oilsands were reshaping the global energy, political, and financial landscapes. The future seemed limitless for the city and those who drew their wealth from the bitumen-rich wilderness. But in 2008, a new narrative for the oilsands emerged. As financial markets collapsed and the scientific reality of the Patch's effect on the environment became clear, the region turned into a boogeyman and a lightning rod for the global movement combatting climate change. Suddenly, the streets of Fort McMurray were the front line of a high-stakes collision between two conflicting worldviews--one of industrial triumph and another of environmental stewardship--each backed by major players on the world stage. The Patch is the seminal account of this ongoing conflict, showing just how far the oilsands reaches into all of our lives. From Fort Mac to the Bakken shale country of North Dakota, from Houston to London, from Saudi Arabia to the shores of Brazil, the whole world is connected in this enterprise. And it requires us to ask the question: In order to both fuel the world and to save it, what do we do about the Patch?"--

The geography of hope : a tour of the world we need by Chris Turner( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the fierce warnings and grim predictions of The Weather Makers and An Inconvenient Truth, acclaimed journalist and national bestselling author Chris Turner finds hope in the search for a sustainable future. Point of no return: The chilling phrase has become the ubiquitous mantra of ecological doomsayers, a troubling headline above stories of melting permafrost and receding ice caps, visions of catastrophe and fears of a problem with no solution. Daring to step beyond the rhetoric of panic and despair, The Geography of Hope points to the bright light at the end of this very dark tunnel. With a mix of front-line reporting, analysis and passionate argument, Chris Turner pieces together the glimmers of optimism amid the gloom and the solutions already at work around the world, from Canada's largest wind farm to Asia's greenest building and Europe's most eco-friendly communities. But The Geography of Hope goes far beyond mere technology. Turner seeks out the next generation of political, economic, social and spiritual institutions that could provide the global foundations for a sustainable future'from the green hills of northern Thailand to the parliament houses of Scandinavia, from the villages of southern India, where microcredit finance has remade the social fabric, to America's most forward-thinking think tanks. In this compelling first-person exploration, punctuated by the wonder and angst of a writer discovering the world's beacons of possibility, Chris Turner pieces together a dazzling map of the disparate landmarks in a geography of hope. While most of the world has been spinning in stagnant circles of recrimination and debate on the subject of climate change, paralyzed by visions of apocalypse both natural (if nothing of our way of life changes) and economic (if too much does), Denmark has simply marched off with steadfast resolve into the sustainable future, reaching the zenith of its pioneering trek on the island of Sams. And so if there's an encircled star on this patchwork map indicating hope's modest capital, then it should be properly placed on this island. Perhaps, for the sake of precision, at the geographic centre of Jrgen Tranberg's dairy farm. There are, I'm sure, any number of images called to mind by talk of ecological revolution and renewable energy and sustainable living, but I'm pretty certain they don't generally include a hearty fiftysomething Dane in rubber boots spotted with mud and cow shit. Which is why Sams's transformation is not just revolutionary but inspiring, not just a huge change but a tantalizingly attainable one. And it was a change that seemed at its most workaday'near-effortless, no more remarkable than the cool October wind gusting across the island'down on Tranberg's farm. 'from The Geography of Hope
