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 feature documentary movie The Eleventh Hour and soon to be released HBO special Ice on Fire, 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 is one of the fundamental handbooks of the environmental activist movement. Now with fresh, updated material on our Earth's rapid climate change 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.… (mer)

Right in the title, the author makes a most important point about the way our society is operating. The nature of our crisis is simple: to feed our economy and way of life, we are exhausting a stored reserve of ancient sunlight that took millennia to form. The consequence is both that this supply of easy energy will end and that we are dumping all that stored C02 into the atmosphere where it warms our climate. Hartmann explains all of this, as well as how he thinks our culture got to this perilous point, and offers his ideas on how we might be able to get ourselves out of this jam. Whether you think it will work depends on whether you are an optimist or a pessimist. ( )

This is easily my favorite non-fiction book, and I look forward to reading the update. One of my students insisted that I read it, and even handed me his Dad's copy. I will be sure to have my students read parts of it as we learn about Environmental Science next year. Well done, Mr. Hartmann.

Important book to read in order to understand the science behind global warming. Thought that the ending was a little preachy and do not necessarily agree with author's perspective for the solution. All and all, I think it was interesting and I'd recommend it. ( )

A good basic book on the perils we all face with the depletion of our precious hydrocarbon energy supply. Mr. Hartmann does a good job of explaining the problem and does try to propose a solution but his solutions seem a little light weight for such a heavy problem. ( )

A book that ought to become part of every persons library, be in every school. Perhaps if people read and listen to the wisdom held within its pages we may find that the planet and humanity have a chance in preserving what is not yet quite destroyed. ( )
