Overview

“Scientifically proven facts are indisputable, but that hasn’t stopped climate change deniers from trying. Much of the controversy regarding climate change stems from the recalcitrance of corporations to adhere to stricter emission standards, which, consequently is born of the fear of lower profits. Dr. Gboloo argues in favor of a different approach that doesn’t undermine private sector profits, but does have the potential to make a major impact on the future of the planet.” --The US Review of Books
