Summary Ð PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ¹ Paul Fleischman Paul Fleischman ¹ 6 Summary Eyes Wide Open Read Ò 6 Weren't visible for centuries but now they are Suddenly everything needs rethinking – suburbs cars fast food cheap prices It's a changed world This book explains it Not with isolated facts but the principles driving attitudes and events from vested interests to denial to big country syndrome Because m. I liked this book I thought it made some good points and brought a little clarity and succinctness to a very often discussed but seldom consolidated topicHowever despite mentioning a few of the opposing viewpoints and sources for opposing viewpoints the author seems to have picked his side and didn t stray far from it He discounted the legitimate scientists and scientific research that disagree with the environmental frenzy and global warming by using phrases like most legitimate scientists believe in global warming and many of the studies that refute global warming are paid for by special interest groups Please be aware these are not exact uotes from the book The point is by couching the phrases in many and most the author gave the impression the pool of reputable scientists conducting legitimate research with findings very different than that predicted or expected by the rest of the scientific community could be ignored or written offAn inordinate amount of time in my opinion was spent on the need to find greener energy sources I would have liked to see pages devoted to conservation of resources and water conservation It was there but not that much Remember your audience Aimed a young adult market the one thing most of them can start working on right now is reducing their own imprint on the environment If you re going to discredit recycling as reuiring a lot of energy and therefore being less effective perhaps espouse the reduce and reuse parts of the 3 R s Kudos though on the coverage of the international initiative or lack of initiative to reduce the emission of greenhouse gasses and decrease carbon build up in the atmosphere Also excellent coverage of the tension between the developing countries and the already established post industrial age countries like the US and the different needs and desires of both in terms of standard of living and energy consumption However there are a few statements that caused me to read and reread passages becausewell uite frankly there seemed to be a few weird conclusions and cause and effect relationships I ve never seen substantiated For example on page 124 Rwanda possessed exhausted land stripped forests and Africa s densest population attempting to survive on ever smaller and steeper plots These conditions led to the genocide of 800000 people in 1994I d like to find a source for that I suppose Hitler Mao Stalin etc were also dealing with environmental issues How about the French revolution The Civil War While economic factors always contribute to a war and the environment can certainly play a factor in the economic conditions of a country how many of these conditions can concretely be blamed on human action or inaction especially those environmental issues occurring pre industrial revolution The inclusion of this fact in the book has me uestioning what other overly simplified rationalizations or hypotheses expressed as fact may occur in the book Nevertheless I thought this was a good book with lots of good information in it It is very readable and should appeal to its teen audience I sincerely wish the author had suggested possible courses of action for its audience members to take rather than just telling them to seek out additional information Note I received an electronic review copy of this book from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased review
