Finally—a hopeful book which empowers us to make the choices we need to make...not out of fear but out of love for ourselves, our Earth, and each other.

In its long-awaited revised edition, You Can Save the Earth, Revised Edition provides even more reasons and ways to pay attention to our planet by being stewards to sustainability. Including the latest information from climate studies, international policy and critical ecological issues, You Can Save the Earth, Revised Edition brings the same level of solution-centered discourse to the next level.

Includes inspirational quotes from influential environmentalists and thought leaders including Jacques-Yves Cousteau, Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Teresa, Walt Whitman, Henry David Thoreau, Howard Zinn, E.F. Schumacher, William Shakespeare, Ayn Rand, and Mahatma Gandhi.

You Can Save the Earth, Revised Edition is the perfect book to pick up for your friends, your office, your home, and yourself.

You Can Save the Earth focuses on real-life, simple solutions to many of our global problems, and emphasizes steps that can be taken on an individual basis or on a local level to promote environmental awareness and conservation.
