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.
