2013 and Beyond counters the dire prediction that life on our planet was ready to end probably December 21 or 22, 2012. We authors did not believe this, and, in fact, we believed the opposite. Our planet was ready for a new beginning. Yes, we agree there are many fractures on Mother Earth, most caused by those living on her. We are actively addressing these problems, and we write about our endeavors. When you read our book, maybe you too will look for ways to help our planet live a long, long time.
