While it seems that things are collapsing all around us -- and on many fronts they are (global warming, humans messing with genes, virulent diseases, the end of cheap oil, water shortages, global famine, wars, etc.) - it's also possible for us to do something about it and create a world that will work for our children's children.
"The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight" details in three parts the damage being done to our biosphere, the reasons why our culture would inevitably do such damage, and how we can fix the problem.
"Thom Hartmann here issues a wake-up call, loud and clear, that must literally be heard around the world -- and the sooner the better, for us and especially for our children." - Daniel Quinn, author of Ishmael "One of the most important books you will ever read." - Neale Donald Walsch, author Conversations with God
Sunlight warms the Earth with life. As our culture moved from ancient hunting/gathering times to the technological era, we discovered ancient sunlight -- captured millions of years ago by plants and compressed into oil deep under our soil and oceans. Now, as our planet's oil supplies are projected to last no more than thirty to fifty years, and species and cultures are dying off at an unprecedented rate, we confront difficult choices.
In this passionate yet thoroughly researched book, author Thom Hartmann proposes that the only lasting solution to the crises we face is to relearn the lessons of our ancient ancestors -- who lived sustainably for thousands of generations.
When you touch this new yet ancient way of seeing the world and hearing the voice of all life, you discover that you, personally, hold the power of personal and planetary transformation.
In that breathtaking moment we see both a possible future for the survival of humanity and the fulfillment of our highest dreams and aspirations.

The Lessons Ancient People Have for Us
I wrote and directed "The Gods Must Be Crazy," Thanks for referencing it. I'm the woman who gave Thom the tagline - Tag you're it. I love the show. I wholeheartedly agree with the premise of the book. Thanks for the righteous indignation. Grace-Gardener.org (Make sure it's me if you call me)
In The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight, pg 8, Thom s the dinosaurs went extinct 205 million years ago but everywhere I look scientists say they went extinct 65 million years ago. Is your info correct?
