Book Pick: The End of the Long Summer

The End of the Long Summer
Author: Dianne Dumanoski
Publisher: Crown
Price: $29.95 (Hardcover)

Environmental journalist Dianne Dumanoski uses The End of the Long Summer to explain how, despite green movements and efforts to abate climate change, humans are unprepared to cope with significant environmental changes on planet Earth. Old social values perpetuated by government must be adapted, she argues, if we have any shot at surviving global-scale climactic shifts. Using records of history and science, Dumanoski explores how we arrived at this juncture in human history and theorizes what people must do.
