In "The Sky's NOT Falling!" Natural resources policy expert Holly Fretwell shows kids 9-12 that it's human ingenuity and adaptability - not a mindless fear of change - that are most likely to guarantee the earth a healthy future.
Prof. Fretwell brings genuine educational credentials and practical experience to the environmental debate, giving kids the straight scoop about global warming - and the potentially devastating human and economic consequences of politically motivated responses to it.
Can it really be that human innovation and creativity, combined with individual choice, will yield better environmental outcomes than the draconian, self-congratulatory approaches advocated by Al Gore and his Hollywood friends? Yes!
