Banyen's Description: 

From the voice of the beloved world religious leader comes an eye-opening manifesto that empowers the generation of today to step up, take action and save our environment.

Saving the climate is our common duty. With each passing day, climate change is causing Pacific islands to disappear into the sea, accelerating the extinction of species at alarming proportions and aggravating a water shortage that has affected the entire world. In short, climate change can no longer be denied—it threatens our existence on earth.

Billions of dollars are spent on weapons of mass destruction. If half of these billions of dollars was used to develop new technologies and wider use of renewable energy, the positive impact it would have in our efforts to limit global warming would be tremendous!

In this new book, the Dalai Lama, one of the most influential figures of our time, calls on political decision makers to finally fight against deadlock and ignorance on this issue and to stand up for a different, more climate-friendly world and for the younger generation to assert their right to regain their future.

Included in the book is the full text of "The Sheltering Tree of Interdependence—A Buddhist Monk's Reflections on Ecological Responsibility' with the Dalai Lama's beautiful commentary.

Today's younger generation has the ability and opportunity to create a more compassionate world. I urge them to make this twenty-first century an era of change rooted in dialogue and a century of colmpassion for all the inhabitants of this planet.

 

Over-exploitation of our natural resources results from ignorance and greed, and a lack of respect for life on earth. Saving the world from the climate crisis is our common responsibility. We must find ways to exercise freedom with responsibility.

 

We need a revolution of compassion based on warmheartedness that will contribute to a more compassionate world with a sense of oneness of humanity. The entire human family must unite and cooperate to protect our common home. I hope that efforts to achieve a more sustainable way of life will meet with success.

"This impassioned account is ideal for readers well versed in current climate change activism, especially efforts spearheaded by Greta Thunberg." —Library Journal
