Hope for a Heated Planet

How Americans Are Fighting Global Warming and Building a Better Future

By Robert K. Musil

Bill McKibben calls Hope for a Heated Planet “a masterfully comprehensive account of both where we are and where we sure better go.” Author Bob Musil, former PSR executive director and now scholar-in-residence at American University, has written an insightful and informative account about the climate change issue and how it has finally emerged in the public’s mind as a major public health concern.  His insider’s view of the struggle among environmental groups to find common purpose around climate change, the triumphs and disappointments of working with various political leaders and presidential administrations, and the challenge of getting the public to take seriously the threats posed by a warming planet will entertain and enlighten you.  PSR members in particular will appreciate the PSR reference points as well as the affirmation that solid community-level support is needed for real and lasting change.
