Publisher Description:

Hot bravely takes aim at perhaps the greatest climate threat of all: apathy. -- Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation

Hertsgaard's answers . . . are lucid, realistic, and offer reason for hope. -- Christian Science Monitor

For twenty years, Mark Hertsgaard has investigated global warming as a journalist, but the full truth did not hit home until he became a father and, soon thereafter, learned that climate change was bound to worsen for decades to come. Hertsgaard's daughter is part of what he has dubbed Generation Hot -- the two billion young people worldwide who will spend the rest of their lives coping with climate disruption. Drawing on reporting from around the world, Hot is a call to action that injects hope and solutions into a debate characterized by doom and gloom and offers a blueprint for how all of us ? parents, communities, countries ? can navigate an unavoidable new era.

[Hot's] urgent message is one that citizens and governments cannot afford to ignore. -- Boston Globe
