Please add Thom Hartmann's book "Last Hours of Humanity" to the truthout.org free book list so that anyone can read this book for free. The topic of climate change is too important for people needing to pay for this information. This way the information in this book can be spread to anyone who needs to know this information freely. We do not have much time to do something about climate change before it is too late.

Thom,

Thanks for writing this latest book on the subject. I received my treasured signed copy as a result of subscribing to Free Speech TV. As a community college, adjunct professor teaching SCI 101, I have referenced your work many times, especially "Last Days of Ancient Sunlight". As I read through "Last Hours of Humanity", on page 11 you stated that Carbon 12 has twelve protons, electrons, and neutrons and thus the number 12 on the Periodic Table. Hopefully, the students in my class would correct you since carbon is the sixth element on the chart because of the presence of 6 protons (its atomic number). The isotope number of 12 is due to the fact that there are 6 protons and 6 neutrons making up the nucleus. Finally, an electrically neutral carbon atom has 6 negatively charged electrons to cancel out the six positively charged protons. Neutron are neutral. When a couple of extra neutrons are present in the nucleus, the element still is carbon but is considered an isotope of carbon, thus Carbon-14. The precentage of carbon that is Carbon-12 is about 98.9%. Please take this correction in the spirit that it is offered, deniers will take any small discrepancy to minimize your efforts.

Can Humanity Be Saved?

Thom plus logo As the Amazon is on fire and the Democratic Party refuses to hold a debate focused on climate change, an Australian think tank has come out with a report suggesting the possibility that climate change could destroy human civilization within as little as 30 years.
