The Year of the Flood
"What is happening to our world? What can we do to reverse the damage? How long have we got? And, most importantly - what kind of 'we'? In other words, what kind of people might undertake the challenge? Dedicated ones - they'd have to be. And unless you believe our planet is worth saving, why bother?"
