Indeed, what began as an initial response of many institutions — denial and delay — has now grown into a crime against humanity. In Boiling PointRoss Gelbspan reveals exactly how the fossil fuel industry is directing the Bush administration’s energy and climate policies.

Even more surprisingly, Gelbspan points a finger at both the media and environmental activists for unwittingly worsening the crisis. Finally, he offers a concrete plan for averting a full-blown climate catastrophe. According to Gelbspan, a proper approach to climate change could solve many other problems in our social, political, and economic lives.

It would dramatically reduce our reliance on oil, and with it our exposure to instability in the Middle East. It would create millions of jobs rooss raise living standards in poor countries whose populations are affected by climate-driven disease epidemics and whose borders are overrun by environmental refugees.
