My First Post Ever!

Can it really be 20 years since Long Live Earth was first published?

The first time around I wanted this book to make a difference.  Judging from the thoughtful letters that I received from kids all over the world (who are now, no doubt, progressive thinking young adults like my son Ben, now 24) I believe it did.

But this time I’m hopeful that Long Live Earth will make an ever BIGGER difference as we have now reached a truly critical moment in our fight against global warming and climate change. ¬†There is simply no time to lose. ¬†That’s why I will be donating a portion of all pre-ordered book proceeds to 350.org, an amazing global grassroots movement committed to solving the climate crisis. ¬†More specifics TBD, but if you don’t already know 350.org then it’s definitely time to check them out. ¬†My target date to begin taking pre-orders for the Anniversary edition of Long Live Earth is October 16. ¬†I sincerely hope you will come back over in mid October to pre-order Long Live Earth for you and yours (and in doing also support 350.org!). ¬†In the meantime click on the link below and check out some really informative, inspiring videos:
