Overview

A companion book to the "Live Earth" concerts of summer 2007 -- printed, of course, on environmentally responsible paper.

"The Live Earth Global Warming Survival Handbook: 77 Essential Skills to Stop Climate Change - or Live Through It," is a 160-page paperback release written by David De Rothschild, founder of Sculpt the Future, a non-profit environmental foundation, and includes a foreword by actor-director Rob Reiner.

Proceeds from the US$14.95 book will be given to the Alliance for Climate Protection, founded by former U.S. vice-president Al Gore, a co-chair of the July 7 2007 "Live Earth" shows.

"This innovative and practical handbook supports the crucial mission and message of the Live Earth concerts and aims to inspire each of us to play a role, to do our share, in confronting and attempting to solve the climate crisis," says Steven Pleshette Murphy, president and CEO of publisher Rodale Books.

Environmentalist David de Rothschild packs a ton of useful information into 160 colorfully illustrated pages: worksheets for calculating the size of your carbon footprint, dozens of energy- and money-saving household tips, and suggestions for making some surprisingly simple but high-impact lifestyle changes. Whether your eco-consciousness is brand spanking new or fairly well developed, you'll find something of value in this hopeful guide to saving the world -- one small step at a time.

This funny book has a dose of reality, a sense of humor, and some wonderful tips for helping prevent or live through Global Warming. Though the book was silly and fun, maybe we should get a bit more serious on protecting the Earth. I still enjoyed reading it nonetheless.
