A short, fast-paced book based on a reality that affects every living creature, including us.
‘Losing Earth’ documents and brings to life the discoveries, monitoring of and attempts by US scientists on carbon emissions during the period 1979 to 1989. Scientists such as US Nasa man—JAMES HANSEN—who sometimes felt compelled to bypass Whitehouse censorship during climate change hearings so that he could TELL THE TRUTH. Ultimately, this Nasa man was prepared to be arrested.
As Editor Jake Silverstein writes: “It will come as a revelation to many readers—an agonizing revelation— to understand how thoroughly (US scientists) grasped the problem and how close they came to solving it.”
It seems nothing was done because of the politicians and now we’re talking about damage limitation . . . playing with people’s lives and habitats . . . while the politicians play catch-up.
Trial Bundle: If you are about to go to trial in the county court, which involves compiling a trial bundle, this publication is a must-have. Click on the book cover to be linked to the Kindle edition. You can also contact me on Facebook for a free PDF of this booklet. At 40 pages, I didn't think it justified a paperback version and, if you can, download the Kindle app to your PC or Mac, which will give you a better experience. Don't use Kindle Cloud, which is not the right app.
