Summary:

This case study investigates the role of the intermediary in public engagement on climate change, through interviews with twenty Canadian presenters of Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth. The study explores the relationship between presenters, audiences and The Climate Project Canada (recently renamed the Climate Reality Project Canada), the organization tasked with training and coordinating presenters. Investigating the development and delivery of climate change presentations, the study looks at each unique phase of presenting, including preparation, personal edits and affective engagement with the public. Areas of emphasis include communication of climate change science, spokesperson credibility, localization, rhetorical strategies, humour, narrative and presentation of solutions. The study concludes with recommendations for how to develop more effective forms of public engagement on climate change.

Summary:

Jack is a whistle blowing Scientist. An unpleasant, interfering, troublemaker, he's convinced work colleagues are falsifying reports, even breaking the law in an effort at gaining results. With his battle cry being 'No-one cares any more' he determines to release details of their transgressions, without, of course, incriminating himself. Matt is a reporter full of anger and resentment, opinionated and ready to blame others for his shortcomings. Whilst he's a competent reporter, he's easily distracted and likes a tipple. He would never be considered for promotion, regardless to the number of times he applies. Anne writes a twice weekly gossipy 'show-biz' column, its success down to her hard work. Since her husband's death, alone with no family, she struggles with even the simplest of tasks and appears to be heading for a breakdown. Jack, Matt and Anne, not the likeliest of partnerships to champion a cause, undeterred they take on the might of the government and step into a world of espionage and treason. However, it's not long before they understand an Inconvenient Truth - The fact something is true doesn't imply they can automatically publish the incriminating details.

Summary:

A New York Times bestseller! The follow up to the #1 New York Times bestselling An Inconvenient Truth and companion to Vice President Al Gore’s new documentary, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, this new book is a daring call to action. It exposes the reality of how humankind has aided in the destruction of our planet and delivers hope through groundbreaking information on what you can do now. Vice President Gore, one of our environmental heroes and a leading expert in climate change, brings together cutting-edge research from top scientists around the world; approximately 200 photographs and illustrations to visually articulate the subject matter; and personal anecdotes and observations to document the fast pace and wide scope of global warming. He presents, with alarming clarity and conclusiveness (and with humor, too) that the fact of global climate change is not in question and that its consequences for the world we live in will be assuredly disastrous if left unchecked. Follow Vice President Gore around the globe as he tells a story of change in the making. He connects the dots of Zika, flooding, and other natural disasters we’ve lived through in the last 10+ years—and much more. The book also offers a comprehensive how-to guide on exactly how we can change the course of fate. With concrete, actionable advice on topics ranging from how to run for office to how to talk to your children about climate change, An Inconvenient Sequel will empower you to make a difference—and lets you know how exactly to do it. Where Gore’s first documentary and book took us through the technical aspects of climate change, the second documentary is a gripping, narrative journey that leaves you filled with hope and the urge to take action immediately. This book captures that same essence and is a must-have for everyone who cares deeply about our planet.

Summary:

Devenu une véritable urgence planétaire, le réchauffement climatique qui pourrait passer pour un processus lent se déroule en fait à un rythme incroyablement rapide. Les savants du monde entier s'accordent à dire qu'il reste à peine une dizaine d'années pour éviter une catastrophe mondiale due au dérèglement du système climatique qui entraîne des perturbations météorologiques extrêmes, des inondations, de longues périodes de sécheresse, des vagues de chaleur meurtrières. Une vérité qui dérange, publié d'après le documentaire réalisé par Davis Guggenheim sur l'engagement de l'ancien vice-président Al Gore, invite à une prise de conscience de cette situation. Depuis cinq ans, ce dernier sillonne les Etats-Unis pour persuader ses concitoyens de l'urgente nécessité de réagir à cette crise. Dans cet ouvrage cohabitent des textes sur l'engagement d'Al Gore et des commentaires très accessibles sur les grandes questions climatologiques actuelles, en s'appuyant sur des exemples concrets illustrés de nombreuses photos et de schémas.

Summary:

Global warming and changes in climate will have severe and lasting impacts on national efforts to alleviate poverty and promote sustainable development. Some of the world s poorest countries and communities are the most vulnerable and are already suffering the consequences. Yet often these countries are rich in natural capital, ecosystems, and biodiversity that can contribute to solutions as they can to climate change. Biodiversity is the foundation and mainstay of agriculture, forests, and fisheries. Biological resources provide the raw materials for livelihoods, agriculture, medicines, trade, tourism, and industry. Forests, grasslands, freshwater, and marine and other natural ecosystems provide a range of services, often not recognized in national economic accounts but vital to human welfare: regulating water flows and water quality, flood control, pollination, decontamination, carbon sequestration, soil conservation, and nutrient and hydrological cycling. Current efforts to address climate change focus mainly on reducing emissions of greenhouse gases, mainly through cleaner energy strategies, and on attempting to reduce vulnerability of the communities at risk by improving infrastructure to meet new energy and water needs. This book book sets out a compelling argument for including ecosystem-based approaches to mitigation and adaptation as a third essential pillar in national strategies to address climate change. Such ecosystem-based strategies can offer cost-effective, proven and sustainable solutions contributing to, and complementing, other national and regional adaptation strategies.

This book describes why the Netherlands has become and, barring drastic action by the Dutch government, will remain such a big player in synthetic drugs.

Nederland en synthetische drugs in de afgelopen 50 jaar (A small country punching above its weight. The Netherlands and synthetic drugs in the past 50 years).

Summary:

Dust of Gods is not a book for the professional, the archaeologist, or the historian; they can read their own books. It has been written for the enthusiastic nonacademic. Its for the serious novice, who may wish to ramble through our past, where often history and religion merge into one. Hopefully, a more meaningful perspective may be cast upon ones understanding of mankinds complex roots, how we arrived at our present state, and where our journey may yet take us. From an agglomeration of uncertainties, this book attempts to lift the shroud of mystery and free the truth behind mankinds success.

Fear, anxiety, one of the perilous, most destructive emotions humankind can experience, isn't it? Nearly 70% of the population experiences anxiety on a daily basis, 20% of those people battle with severe anxiety. It can tear down the largest dreams and shatter the smallest hopes. Journey with me as I take you on a little adventure I had back in November 2018 from Canada to Florida via a spontaneous vacation gifted to me and my sister from out long-forgotten father.

Traveling, let alone meeting someone seemed like an absolute impossibility to me let alone eating in public, playing in public, or sleeping next to someone. Enjoyment seemed like a fantasy.

Summary:

"Over 15 chapters, Dunaway transforms what we know about icons and events. Seeing Green is the first history of ads, films, political posters, and magazine photography in the postwar American environmental movement. From fear of radioactive fallout during the Cold War to anxieties about global warming today, images have helped to produce what Dunaway calls "ecological citizenship," telling us that "we are all to blame." Dunaway heightens our awareness of how depictions of environmental catastrophes are constructed, manipulated, and fought over"--Publisher info.
