Subject: Meet the Author of "Hope for a Heated Planet," Dr. Robert Musil, Feb. 25 at Noon at Northeastern



How Americans are Fighting Global Warming and Building a Better Future

In his new book Musil attempts to redefine environmentalism and to enlarge the parameters of the environmental movement to include Americans from all walks of life. He demonstrates that all citizens are connected to the climate crisis: parents concerned about their children’s health, labor organizers, business leaders, religious Americans, academics and youth. Hope for a Heated Planet includes the scientific and historical facts necessary to put global warming in context. It also provides practical ways an individual can help alleviate the crisis and explores sustainable energy solutions. Musil does not just point fingers, but seeks to find answers, to broaden understanding and, most importantly, to spread hope.

"Hope for a Heated Planet is an important and timely book. Musil not only makes a strong case that a real climate movement is underway, he shows how a public health perspective can help to accelerate this hopeful new movement."Jonathan Isham, Editor of Ignition: What You Can Do to Fight Global Warming and Spark a Movement
