Synopsis

Twenty influential writers and scientists contribute personal, practical, and political essays celebrating our planet.

In this powerful collection of original essays, twenty of the world's most influential journalists, writers, scientists, and environmentalists lend their voices to inform and engage those who are committed to the survival of the Earth and its inhabitants. Personal, practical, political, full of wonder and rage, this book respectfully continues the conversation that the inimitable David Suzuki began more than fifty years ago. With essays inspired by Canada's foremost environmentalist, contributions include personal experiences with nature, including:

  • David Helvarg on childhood and the sea
  • Rick Bass on falling in love with the Yaak Valley in Montana
  • Richard Mabey on a May night in Suffolk with a full moon
  • Helen Caldicott on our notions of terrorism and poverty
  • Ross Gelbspan on a public policy strategy that could make Kyoto targets a reality for North America
  • Carl Safina on the continued need for effective science communicators
  • Sherilyn MacGregor on Earth-friendly citizenship, leadership, and scholarship.
  • Finally, Tom Berger, John Lucchesi, and Robyn Williams describe their personal experiences with David Suzuki and what his example has meant to them.
