Antarctica: A Call to Action Reviews
Photography was appropriately stunning, eerily blue glaciers and awkward-standing penguins. The "Call to Action" was a little underwhelming, admittedly, though perhaps I'm just becoming jaded. I'd recommend reading any Kim Stanley Robinson novel instead, if inspiration to change the way the world lives is what you're looking for.
This was a perfect awareness for somebody who is too immersed with localised goals (my career, higher education, family, etc.) to notice the bigger picture, such as the environment. I do not personally take the time to get overly informed on matters that are typically controversial, and the environment seemed a special kind of crazy. I strongly believe in being a steward of our planet, but wading through all of the tripe that also negatively impacted the environment to find out how I can be a better steward in the modern era did not seem appetising. Basically, environmental stewardship seems like religion; lots of hypocrisy and grand-standing, but little actual follow-through. However, this book laid out understandable facts with lots of beautiful Antartica photos to signify what will be lost due to negligence that is still so much within out control. The education of the polars acting as the Earth's lung system was very helpful to my needs of analogies, and raised my personal awareness of global warming's danger.Perhaps most valuable is in the back where after you have realised that you want to do your part but really don't know what, there is a list of easy things to do that are very effective for home management, travel, shopping, and leadership awareness. I have found the ones that I can adjust without endangering my time constraints yet being a positive influence for my daughter and a better Earth steward.Oh, Orlando Bloom wrote the forward. MMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmm :)
Beautiful pictures. Environmental concerns are same as always. Don't waste your money buying this book unless you want to use it for a coffee table book.
