Falter book cover
Bill McKibben - 2019-04-16
Goodreads Rating
Falter is a powerful and sobering call to arms about the converging trends of climate change, artificial intelligence, and robotics that threaten to bleach away our humanity. Bill McKibben draws on his experience in building a global citizens movement to combat climate change to offer possible ways out of this trap. This groundbreaking book warns us that we're at a bleak moment in human history and we'll either confront that bleakness or watch the civilization our forebears built slip away.

.@BillMcKibben’s new book “Falter” is a must-read for those grappling with hope and despair on the climate crisis. He paints a vivid portrait of the complex issues facing us as a species - and how we can move forward. I’m thankful to Bill for his leadership.      source

Join Lug, a misfit caveboy who loves painting instead of hunting, on an exciting adventure in this hilarious middle-grade novel. Lug's clan belittles him with the nickname "Little Slug," but when he fails to catch a jungle llama and is banished, he discovers newfound friends in Stony and Echo. Together, they face the challenges of the approaching Ice Age and the threat of saber-toothed tigers while trying to unite warring clans. With funny anachronistic humor, charming characters, and a strong theme, Lug, Dawn of the Ice Age is perfect for readers who love Ice Age, Happy Feet, The Time Warp Trio, and Platypus Police Squad.
