Description:

If left unchecked, climate change will ultimately supersede every other issue facing us today. Indeed, what began as an initial response of many institutions-denial and delay-has now grown into a crime against humanity. The fossil fuel industry is directing the Bush administration's energy and climate policies. But they're not the only ones to blame: both the media and environmental activists have unwittingly worsened the crisis. Gelbspan offers a set of specific policy strategies to address these problems-solutions that not only take on the climate crisis, but that could provide a global project to begin to mend a profoundly fractured world. Both a passionate call-to-arms and a thoughtful roadmap for change, Boiling Point reveals exactly what's at stake for our fragile planet. Book jacket.
