Global Warming and War
Woodgate International, 22. apr. 2008 - 513 strani
In Global Warming and War, the second novel in the ADIRONDACK GREEN trilogy, the people of a small American town respond to the dying of their forest, and to the death of one of their sons in Iraq.
The 32 high school seniors boldly examine the threat to their Adirondack Park, and to the Earth itself. In addition, they meet 32 wounded veterans, back from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, during an extraordinary week of adaptive skiing on Bobcat Mountain. The reader meets these veterans face to face as they rise to the challenge of skiing without legs, of skiing blind.
The peoples of the world have a choice. We can either work together on a global scale to replace oil and coal with clean sources of energy, or we can continue to fight our wars for oil. Even if we win the oil wars, we may well poison our Earth to the point that Mother Nature becomes Uncle Briar Patch.
A program of international cooperation—which includes the universities of the world—will create many more jobs and stable, growing economies than plunder and war could ever create. Students around the globe are ready to rise to the challenge. Every wind turbine will bring us a step closer to a lasting peace.
