I came across this book on Facebook because I am friends with the author, David Griffin. Not just friends on Facebook but friends for real from my time living in Santa Barbara. He’s controversial in his subjects but not afraid to stick his neck out and say what’s on his mind.
I wanted to offer you an opportunity to know about his latest book by sharing a review that he gave me permission to post here:
by David Ray Griffin
“This book . . . is very comprehensive and covers the science of climate change, followed by the challenges in dealing with climate change, and closing with what needs to be done. I found the main strength of the book to be in Part II where there are some excellent compilations about climate change denial, media failure, political failure, and the moral and ethical challenges. . . . [T]here is very good discussion of commercial and industrial interests vs common good. There are also some excellent sections dealing with religion and the strange link between evolution and climate change in many world views; and the economics of climate change, in particular the issues of how much we value the future generations and equity among nations. The case for the need for a universal carbon tax is made quite well.” – Kevin Trenberth, Distinguished Senior Scientist, National Center for Atmospheric Research.
More Reviews that I found on Amazon:
“…a most excellent compilation of renewable energy facts and context…” — Zachary Shahan, Director, CleanTechnica.com and Planetsave.com
“If you can read only one book on climate change, make it this one…clear and comprehensive…a masterful depiction of the severe dangers and our best available escape routes. If reading this book does not change your life, nothing will.” — Richard Falk, UN Special Rapporteur/Reporter
“As always, David Ray Griffin is meticulous in his research, startling in his conclusions, and thought-provoking in the way he frames issues. A brilliant addition to the literature on climate change and its terrible consequences!” — THOM HARTMANN

More than anything else I’ve found, The Zeitgeist Movement Defined, Realizing a New Train of Thought, gives me more hope that a beautiful future is possible for all. Not right away, though. We all need to shift our thinking, open our hearts, and awaken to a new way of seeing the world. If you truly want to heal the planet and build a better future, download this book for free. I am on my second reading, have watched all three Zeitgeist Documentaries, posted here on EE, along with some of Peter Joseph’s interviews. Consider joining or starting a Zeitgeist Chapter where you live.
