No! That is not Woody Allen on the cover -- rising from the ocean like the Lady of the Lake distributing swords to passing Knights of the Round Table. While some would argue the resemblance is strong and the borrowed regalia somewhat comical, the message is very serious.
Daniel's timeless (and timely) speech, while short on words, gets right to the point. What will the class of 2099 be dealing with regarding our climate? What can be done now to save them from the fate proposed by many leading climate change experts?
This eBook single contains Daniel's speech and a link to the corresponding YOUTUBE video. For more information on the book please see:

The publisher has promised $1 from each sale to be split between two leading climate change charities:
Pew Center on Global Climate Change:
The Pew Center on Global Climate Change brings together business leaders, policy makers, scientists, and other experts to bring a new approach to a complex and often controversial issue. Our approach is based on sound science, straight talk, and a belief that we can work together to protect the climate while sustaining economic growth.
At the Pew Center, we are . . .
. . . producing first-rate analyses of key climate issues. Over the past ten years, the Pew Center has issued over 100 reports from top-tier researchers on key climate topics such as economic and environmental impacts and practical domestic and international policy solutions. The Pew Center distributes its reports to more than 4,000 opinion leaders throughout the world with thousands more downloaded monthly from the Center's website. The research is regularly featured in major news stories from the Associated Press, Nature Magazine, The New York Times, and other media.
. . . working to keep policy makers informed. The Pew Center's Eileen Claussen and staff regularly hold briefings with members of Congress, key Executive Branch officials as well as state and international leaders. In addition, the Pew Center has played an active role in bringing business leaders and policymakers together to discuss policy frameworks and workable solutions to climate change. Our research informs our discussions with policymakers.
. . . engaging the business community in the search for solutions. Top companies are coming together to share strategies and insight. We work with 46 major corporations in our Business Environmental Leadership Council (BELC). These primarily Fortune 500 companies together employ over 4 million people and represent over $2 trillion in combined revenues—and they're working with us to shape policy and chart practical solutions to climate change. These corporations meet quarterly, participate in workshops and conferences, and review and offer comment on all Pew Center work. To maintain our independence, the Pew Center accepts no monetary contributions from BELC companies.
. . . reaching out to educate the key audiences. Pew Center staff members participate in scores of speaking engagements each year before audiences of business leaders, government officials, academics, students, and the general public. In addition, information and perspectives from the Pew Center are regularly featured in major national and international media, including The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The Economist, National Public Radio, and CNN.
The Climate Institute has been in a unique position to inform key decision-makers, heighten international awareness of climate change, and identify practical ways of achieving significant emissions reductions. This has been done through several different media including symposia, conferences, roundtables, and special briefings. These have been carried out not only in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Japan and Europe but also in as many as 30 developing countries providing expert advice at ministerial and heads of state briefings and at sessions with business executives and private citizens.
The Climate Institute has achieved this by tapping into its vast network of experts and alliances in the US and internationally. In all its efforts, the Institute strives to be a source of objective, reliable information. The Institute has distinguished itself as a world leader in promoting global climate balance with practical and cooperative approaches.
A Board of Directors elected annually governs the activities of the Climate Institute. A diverse group, the Institute's Board is made up of academic, business, environmental and scientific leaders from nine nations. An equally diverse network makes up the Institute's Board of Advisors, which plays a critical advisory role in the Institute's deliberations.
The Climate Institute receives financial support from membership, private and corporate contributions, grants, and contractual services for government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and publication sales.
The Internal Revenue Service recognizes the Climate Institute as an eligible nonprofit organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. Accordingly gifts, contributions and grants to the Climate Institute may be tax deductible under U.S. federal or state law to individual or corporate donors.
