2019-August's Book selection
"Hot: Living Through the Next Fifty Years on Earth," by Mark Hertsgaard
" 'Hot' bravely takes aim at perhaps the greatest climate threat of all: apathy." - Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation
"Hertsgaard's answers . . . are lucid, realistic, and offer reason for hope." - Christian Science Monitor
"For twenty years, Mark Hertsgaard has investigated global warming as a journalist, but the full truth did not hit home until he became a father and, soon thereafter, learned that climate change was bound to worsen for decades to come. Hertsgaard's daughter is part of what he has dubbed 'Generation Hot' -- the two billion young people worldwide who will spend the rest of their lives coping with climate disruption. Drawing on reporting from around the world, 'Hot' is a call to action that injects hope and solutions into a debate characterized by doom and gloom and offers a blueprint for how all of us -- parents, communities, countries -- can navigate an unavoidable new era. Amazon review.
"[ Hot 's] urgent message is one that citizens and governments cannot afford to ignore." -- Boston Globe
