The End of Life as We Know It

This series imparts to readers the size and scope of the impending environmental, economic, and physical disasters ahead of us if we continue to do virtually nothing differently. These books will incite readers to actively practice and advocate for a complete change in behavior and in thinking that is required for us to continue to be able to survive on Earth.
