Description - If You Love This Planet by Helen Caldicott
The US, with 5 percent of the world's population, uses 25 percent of its energy resources; 20 to 200 species become extinct daily in tropical rainforests; and each 1 percent decrease in the ozone level produces a 6 percent increase in the incidence of skin cancer. A renowned anti-nuclear activist for many years, Helen Caldicott turns here from the arms race to the race to save the planet, laying out the grim details of ozone depletion, excess energy consumption, pollution and global warming. She also gives her recommendations for a cure - and a cause for hope. She suggests that we must learn energy efficiency, we must organize politically (voting, for instance, should be compulsory), and we must hold corporations and governments accountable for their actions.
