Fight Global Warming Now by Bill McKibben, Book Give Away

Fightglobalwarmingnow I just received an excellent book by the noteworthy, bestselling author Bill McKibben called Fight Global Warming Now: The Handbook for Taking Action in Your Community.  And as I’ve done in the past, I’m giving a copy away.*  McKibben is the author of several books and with Fight Global Warming Now, he draws on his experience with Step It Up 2007 to explain what it takes to launch online grassroots campaigns, generate persuasive political pressure, and plan high-profile events that will draw media attention.  The book is a blueprint of sorts for the movement to battle climate change.  To give you an idea, one of the goals of the movement is an 80% reduction in carbon emissions by 2050.  Feel free to visit Bill McKibben‘s website or Step It Up 2007 to learn more about it and Step It Up 2, which is planned for November 3, 2007.

*After 48 hours, I’m going to pick a number out of a cap and give this book away to the comment number corresponding to the number I pick.  Since you leave your email when you comment, I’ll email you for your address and shipping’s on me to anywhere in the U.S.  Not sure what to say in the comments?  Tell me where you’re commenting from: "SLC, Utah here!"

    Just finished reading McKibbon’s “Deep Economy.”

    Great book. Covers much of the same material as other books — eating locally, peak oil, global warming — he brings new material to the discussion: the problem with our expectations of a continual high growth economy. He also brings solutions, namely the development of local communities.

    Highly recommmended to anyone concerned with our future.
