Stop Global Warming: The Solution is You—An Activist’s Guide
Denver, CO (9/6/2006)—Global warming and its devastating effects are issues that dot headlines throughout the country on any given day. In her new book Stop Global Warming: The Solution is You—An Activist’s Guide, producer and environmental activist Laurie David addresses the threat of global warming and urges readers to become the next wave of activists on this critical issue. Stop Global Warming seeks to turn headlines into action by showing readers how every individual matters and can make a real difference to help solve this urgent problem in this growing movement to protect our future. From unplugging cell phone chargers when not in use, to purchasing post consumer recycled waste paper products, David suggests that it isn’t about doing everything, it’s about everyone doing something. She offers suggestions on how shifting basic, everyday behaviors will help Americans reduce their own global warming pollution and help shift the country’s desire to tackle the problem before its too late.
In this personal account of her journey into activism, David’s powerful voice inspires readers with grounded information on why everyone (and particularly young people) should get involved in the race to stop global warming. Interspersed throughout the text, short statements by celebrities, mayors, governors, senators, business leaders, and other concerned Americans discuss why the issue of global warming is really about protecting all that we hold near and dear.
“So many people ask, ‘What can I do?’ and it is my hope that this book will help answer that question and inspire a whole new set of activists to help stop global warming,” says David.
Laurie David is also the founder of the Stop Global Warming Virtual March (StopGlobalWarming.org) that began in April of 2005. This historic initiative is engaging religious leaders, labor unions, elected officials from all sides of the aisle, business leaders, and American citizens to urge the United States to address the ticking time bomb that is global warming.
Stop Global Warming: The Solution Is You—An Activist’s Guide includes a foreword by David’s husband, comedian Larry David, and an afterword by Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
