Discussion of Bill McKibben's EAARTH 11-30-12

Our November Book-of-the-Month is....

eaarth:  Making a Life on a Tough New Planet

Twenty years ago, with The End of Nature, Bill McKibben offered one of the earliest warnings about global warming. Those warnings went mostly unheeded; now, he insists, we need to acknowledge that we've waited too long, and that massive change is not only unavoidable but already under way. Our old familiar globe is suddenly melting, drying, acidifying, flooding, and burning in ways that no human has ever seen. We've created, in very short order, a new planet, still recognizable but fundamentally different. We may as well call it Eaarth.

We'll play excerpts of the audiobook and launch into the fray on this book and its crucial topic. Friday November 30 at 7 pm. This month eaarth will be available at a discounted price. You can also purchase it from Revolution Books online for the regular price [here.]


Next month's book: Storms of My Grandchildren
