Our Only Home: A Climate Appeal to the World

We rated this book:


His Holiness the Dalai Lama, said to be the happiest man in the world, faces Earth’s most hopeless devastation in Our Only Home: A Climate Appeal to the World. The apocalyptic fate of humanity is a certainty, that much is known. Journalist and friend of the Dalai Lama, Franz Alt speaks dutifully alongside the great religious leader.

Spoken with clarity and lacking totally in hypocrisy, this manifesto lauds renewable energy as a source of the reversal of humanity’s ethical plight. It is crystal clear that the hopelessness emanates from the opposing faction, as the many tributes to young political leader Greta Thunberg (in many ways, this book is an ode to her actions) prove: there is worthiness in this calamitous fight.

Testament to the prophecy of this book is the increasing rapidity of inaction regarding climate change. Mere months after its publication, the British Public Accounts Committee (PAC) regarding global warming release a statement saying that leaders have “no plan” to meet the targets they set to reduce and remove carbon emissions. Having read this book, I now know that this comes as no surprise, except of course to the leaders themselves.
