Reviews

"Eminent scientists have said that global warming is as dangerous for our future as nuclear war. We have entered the uncharted territory of a global emergency, where 'business as usual' cannot continue. We must take the initiative to repair and protect this world, ensuring a safe-climate future for all people and all species.... It is now urgent that we take corrective action to ensure a safe climate future for coming generations of human beings and other species."--His Holiness the Dalai Lama
"If we continue abusing the earth this way, there is no doubt that our civilization will be destroyed. This turnaround takes enlightenment, awakening. The Buddha attained individual awakening. Now we need a collective enlightenment to stop this course of destruction."--Thich Nhat Hanh
"The world itself has a role to play in our awakening. Its very brokenness and need call to us, summoning us to walk out of the prison of self-concern."--Joanna Macy
"Each of us must take complete responsibility for the world, as if the world's fate depended on our words and actions. And whether we know it or not, it does."--Hozan Alan Senauke
"This surely must rivet the urgent, critical attention of anyone who takes the bodhisattva vows."--Susan Murphy Roshi
"This is the time for humankind to embark upon a new historical epoch. We ourselves have to make the critical decisions, individually and collectively, that will determine our future destiny."--Bhikkhu Bodhi
