User reviews about this book
Although McKibben uses his language skills to try and sway you to his side he has less evidence I feel that he did nothing compared to Alex Epstein's Moral Case of Fossil Fuels. If you want an unbiased, ethical, professional, and scientific look at our "Polluted Earth" take a look at his book. After all Bill said we would all be dead by 2015...
The Ethical Impact of Eaarth
It breaks my heart that I, who love this planet so have come so late to actually doing something. Sure I've changed my life style and reduced my carbon foot print (not enough), and I've been working with businesses to make some changes, but none of it has been enough.
This book has been a painful read but also a soul saver. Resilience doesn't happen if you are not clear about reality. This book helps with that. But more importantly it helps with next steps. The change is here - now what? Billy's almost poetic writing and very positive attitude makes the hard stuff easier and the next move realistic and possible.
Read this book! Read it all the way through. It offers more than hope, it offers inspiration and simple action. It stimulates an ethical impact!
I love it..
I just got the book, and I have begun reading the first chapter and so far so good, it look like a very promising book, packed with fact and and the meantime written down in an easy way that everyone can understand it...... Give a try, it would be worth it, I guaranteed you...
This book couldn't be more crammed with hard-to-believe (and sometimes downright frightening) yet verifiable facts regarding the reality of global warming and of the state of our planet. A good read regardless of where you fall on the political spectrum, and really, something that needs to be read by everyone. McKibben presents a plethora of evidence that shows how we've significantly changed our planet and are in danger of changing it into something irreparable. We can still prevent the worst case scenario, but as McKibben makes plain, even in the best case scenario the Earth we will end up with will not be the Earth we used to know.

As always, McKibben is spot on.
This must be read
If those who don't "believe" in climate change have you doubting the veracity of the science, this book will quickly convince you that climate change is not only real, but it is the most pressing problem confronting the human race. Somehow, McKibben is able to marshall facts and figures in a way that's both comprehensive and easy to read.
