As a media personality, Hunter still uses his newspaper columns, his role as an ecology specialist on CityTV, and new book, 2030: Confronting Thermageddon in Our Lifetime, to make global warming a hot issue

As a media personality, Hunter still uses his newspaper columns, his role as an ecology specialist on CityTV, and new book, 2030: Confronting Thermageddon in Our Lifetime, to make global warming a hot issue. Bob tackles the problem of how burning fossil fuels for transportation and power pollute the atmosphere, causing the globe to retain heat like a greenhouse, which he believes can lead to higher mean temperatures, drought, deforestation, melting ice caps, flooding, increased spread of tropical diseases, and ultimately, threatens human survival on Earth.

A better, more realistic hope, by the time my grandson is my age, will be to head out into space. Good luck making the final crew list, Dexter. c. Reversibility Dunpont, ‘8 War has customarily been considered the main threat to international security because of the large number of deaths it causes and the threat it poses to the functioning and survival of.

2030: Confronting Thermageddon in Our Lifetime. Author and Greenpeace co-founder Robert Hunter is at his angry best in 2030 when drawing out the scientifically proven (yes, proven) causes of climate change and the disastrous consequences we may already be facing. Think floods; think famine; think bad, bad news for most people across most of the Earth. Hunter also exposes the disinformation campaign waged by the oil industry and sympathetic governments, with the help of the few scientists who deny climate change is occuring.

Robert Lorne Hunter (October 13, 1941 – May 2, 2005) was a Canadian environmentalist, journalist, author and politician. He was a member of the Don't Make a Wave Committee in 1969, and a co-founder of Greenpeace in 1971 and its first president. He led the first on-sea anti-whaling campaigns in the world, against Russian and Australian whalers, which helped lead to the ban on commercial whaling.

But while Carson examined the impact of pesticides on wildlife and extrapolated their affect on human fertility, this study looks directly at what's happening to our hormones and reproductive systems. Storm Warning, by Lydia Dotto (Doubleday, 2000) This Canadian book probes political realities, exposing, for example, the way donor countries including Australia have blackmailed small island states to take less aggressive advocacy positions on stopping global warming.

The old maxim, that we should think seven generations ahead, is no
longer valid, not if Robert Hunter and the scientists he quotes in this
important book on climate change are correct. There's what's left of my
generation, and my children's. Then, if we don't stop spewing greenhouse
gasses into the atmosphere at the crazed rate we are now, my
grandchildren's generation will be toast, literally.
Although there will be some who'll say it's too hot to handle, once I'd
started reading "2030" I couldn't put it down, and now Hunter has
energized me to get out of my rocking chair and start doing something to
change things. I hope he has the same effect on everyone who reads his
passionate and well-researched plea for sanity. The people who survive a
house fire are not the ones who say, "Maybe it'll go out by itself," or,
"Don't worry. The neighbours will call the fire department." Hunter
shows us that because of our pathological addiction to fossil fuels, our
planet is really broke and that we'd better start fixing it now. And
then, thankfully, he shows us the way.

If you saw one of two version of "On the beach" you must remember the only way to prevent a "thermagedon" is to act now. Some people say the number of jobs and profits are going to be lost, but we need to be very blind to pretend ignorance. Hermann Hesse said: "Ignorance or pretending being unaware is a most serious offence than any other offence". At "2030", Mr. Hunter is as elocuent as one can posible be. Do you like to see children playing? Chances are you will answer "yes"...Children are always the future. But what kind of future you would like for them? This book is an excellent saga of those authors who gave us the alert sound long ago. Not olny excellent written but also clear and clever, is a very good updated voice depicting the clear landscape of what is ahead if we do not change our paterns of production and lifestyle. If we choose to wait to save jobs and profits, we will end empty handed and as Robert Hunter says "our grandchildren maybe will spit on our pictures". A powerful book. Don't miss it: It is a landmark!

Boy is this one angry eco-zealot on an ego trip!!

I'm always suspicious that a writer's arguments are specious when he reverses the traditional order of debate (premise followed by argument followed by conclusions). I also had difficulty extracting the facts from the diatribe and it would have been nice if he'd indexed the book. The manner in which he presents the small amount of factual content in the book betrays the fact that he's a journalist (and not a particularly good one) with a smattering of scientific knowledge. His style is strident and sarcastic and that makes me suspicious also. He knows all the tricks though, - e.g. syllogisms - the best one on p. 55, -
"humans make greenhouse gases, gases cause warming, ergo humans cause warming." Sort of like, "all trains are long, some buses are long, therefore trains are buses".
Inaccuracies abound to reinforce his argument. It's hard to check on his facts since tables and charts aren't included and there are no references footnotes or bibliography, a major omission in this sort of book. On p. 234 e.g. he says that 4.7 hectares=238 square metres. My math says it's 47,000! If this is any indication of his accuracy our grandkids (and Dexter) may be OK after all. There were also many malapropisms and "post hoc ergo propter hoc" conclusions and I found his pronouncements annoyingly strident and sarcastic throughout the book. This detracted from my ability to either listen to or believe his constant ranting.
