In Global Warming and War - a new green book on the shelves

We are always happy to hear from our readers and especially when it's about a green book they just published!

So without further ado, I would like to present you with the new book of Dr. John Slade 'In Global Warming and War', the second novel in the ADIRONDACK GREEN trilogy.

So what this is about? here's the author's description:

In 'In Global Warming and War', the second novel in the ADIRONDACK GREEN trilogy, the people of a small American town respond to the dying of their forest, and to the death of one of their sons in Iraq.

The 32 high school seniors boldly examine the threat to their Adirondack Park, and to the Earth itself. In addition, they meet 32 wounded veterans, back from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, during an extraordinary week of adaptive skiing on Bobcat Mountain. The reader meets these veterans face to face as they rise to the challenge of skiing without legs, of skiing blind.

The peoples of the world have a choice. We can either work together, on a global scale, to replace oil and coal with clean sources of energy, or we can continue to fight our wars for oil. Even if we win the oil wars, we may well poison our Earth to the point that Mother Nature becomes Uncle Briar Patch.

A program of international cooperation -which includes the universities of the world--will create many more jobs and stable, growing economies than plunder and war could ever create. Students around the globe are ready to rise to the challenge. Every wind turbine will bring us a step closer to a lasting peace.

The first novel in the trilogy is
ADIRONDACK GREEN, which was published on Earth Day 2006, and focuses on a small town that puts up a wind turbine, and loses a son in the war in Iraq.

About the author: John Slade has been a high school and university English teacher in America, on the island of St. Croix in the Caribbean, in Norway, and in Russia. He believes deeply in the present global generation of well educated and highly motivated students. Their Renaissance has already begun in countries around the world.

Thank you Dr. Slade for sharing with us the news on your new green book! 'In Global Warming and War', which was published this month, sounds as an interesting book, combining a green message and a good story.
