FREE Resilient Earth Kindle eBook

In 2008, Allen Simmons and Dr. Doug L. Hoffman published The Resilient Earth their seminal book on the science behind climate change. The book has sold well over the years but the purpose behind writing the book was always to inform and educate, not to make money. Nowadays, with a resurgence in interest in climate change, started by uninformed and overtly political comments by President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, the need to explain the science of climate change to the public is more pressing than ever. To help inform the public REP has decided to give the Kindle eBook version of The Resilient Earth away for free between 2/24/2014 and 2/28/2014/. Get your copy today and be sure to tell your friends and acquaintances.

Here is the introduction from the Resilient Earth Press website:

A million years after the birth of our sun, the violent explosion of a nearby supernova nearly ended life on Earth before it began. Over the next four and a half billion years, forces of nature shaped our planet and the life it harbored. Barely surviving the traumatic birth of the Moon, buffeted by supernovae, and bombarded by asteroids, the resilient Earth endured. And despite planet-freezing ice ages, devastating mass extinctions, and ever changing climate, life not only survived, it thrived. Today, we are told all life on Earth is threatened by a new peril--human-caused global warming. The Resilient Earth presents the science behind global warming for a general audience, separating fact from fiction and truth from exaggeration.

Here is co-author, Dr. Doug L. Hoffman's explanation of the give-a-way:

Some years back Allen and I wrote a book on the science behind climate change. That book, The Resilient Earth, has sold well over the past 5+ years and seems as topical as ever. This week, we are giving the book away as an Amazon Kindle ebook. It is not just a dry technical book and it contains no kooky rants, it is a book about science and the amazing planet we live on. You can find it at the link below.

It Is Over!

Just in case anyone failed to note the dates, the free book give-a-way is over. We hope the readers who downloaded the Kindle eBook enjoy The Resilient Earth.

Patrick Moore Statement

Was just reading the Statement of Patrick Moore, Ph.D. Before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, Subcommittee on Oversight. When I first read it, it reminded me of your Introduction to The Resilient Earth. After re reading both, it sure appears that He has the same attitude as Doug and Allen or at least feels the same way about the climate - Skeptical!

Thanks for the Kindle copy, have had the paper for several years and am reading it again.

You are most welcome

You are most welcome for the ebook. We are in the last hours of the give-a-way so tell your friends. It's good to have Patrick Moore on our side, he has come to support nuclear energy and has long stated that there is no evidence that mankind is causing dangerous global warming. Both Al and I consider ourselves environmentalists, against pollution of all kinds, against strip mining and clear-cutting of forests, but we are not fools. We do not think that a trace gas in the atmosphere is driving climate change or that human activity will cause dangerous changes in climate. There are plenty of other ways we can (and do) mess the planet up but CO2 is not one of them.
