This is good but very detailed read of how the world can avert a collapse due to global warming and climate change.

It is not for the weak reader but goes into depth on many subjects far more detailed than the average reader can ...more

Rirdan's book ought to be required reading for all those who seek a future for their grandchildren and future generations.

Our political systems have paid lip service to the necessary changes for planetary conservatio ...more
