We live enshrouded by an atmospheric greenhouse of gases and water vapor that has maintained life-supporting conditions for hundreds of millions of years; CO2 is part of that mix.

But over the past three million years our greenhouse system has been highly unstable. The record of CO2 trapped in polar ice reveals that over the last , years, during dramatic swings between ice ages and warm periods, CO2 has oscillated between and ppm. In the last rapid warm-up from the most recent glacial period, CO2 jumped to ppm, and then oscillated around ppm.

Since then, for about 9, years, our climate has been relatively stable. Agriculture, civilizations and states emerged, and global population grew from several million at the end of the last Ice Age to 1. Since , industrial emissions have driven atmospheric CO2 levels from about to Human populations are now surging toward eight billion.

A doubling of CO2 from preindustrial levels, which is projected by — due to the combination of industrial emissions and huge volumes of ancient greenhouse gases rising from melting permafrost — will put the earth at CO2 levels not seen for 35 million years , the last time that Antarctica was ice-free. A quadrupling of CO2 would put us into the extreme hothouse conditions of the Jurassic era. Because CO2 traps heat, our industrial emissions of greenhouse gases have launched a sudden and rapid shift in global temperature and climate. We did not understand what we were doing until recently, but we do now.

Technological rates of change provide a ray of hope. Fossil-fueled economies emerged in a geological instant—the past two hundred years—but over the last decade, renewable energy systems have developed even more explosively.

Driven by technological advances and economies of scale, renewable energy is already a prudent financial investment.

This book was assigned for my grad school class on Community Equity and Asset Building my favorite class of grad school to date. It details the founding and development of a grassroots group called the Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative DSNI in a poor neighborhood of Boston in the late s and early s. The author is no impartial observer but was the organization's founding executive director. As my professor cautioned, it is a "book with a soundtrack", which is to say, it is overwhe This book was assigned for my grad school class on Community Equity and Asset Building my favorite class of grad school to date.

As my professor cautioned, it is a "book with a soundtrack", which is to say, it is overwhelmingly upbeat and enamored of the organization though, to Medoff's credit, it focuses very little on his own actions. Thus, it was missing the sort of critical lens that would have given the book more depth. We never hear about problems or disputes within the organization, with the exception of a short vignette at the beginning which seems to serve only to set the stage for "how they figured out the right way to do things.

A great look at how residents of the Dudley Street neighborhood in Roxbury challenged the typical top-down pattern of urban renewal and gentrification, instead rebuilding their community on their own terms. Nicely detailed and inspiring. If you live in and around Boston, read it - and then go visit!

Nov 03, Davey rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction. Nothing like a successful case study of community organizing to restore your faith in humanity and a well-research history of urban disinvestment; targeted, government sponsored ghettoization; and illegal dumping to dash said face against rocks of reason. Kudos to the folks of Dudley Street. May all communities take the stand you took, and with a similar response from government. Sep 29, Colette!
