It’s the 22nd April and it is Earth Day!

Why do we need Earth Day?

Because it works!  Earth Day broadens the base of support for environmental programs, rekindles public commitment and builds community activism around the world through a broad range of events and activities. Earth Day is the largest civic event in the world, celebrated simultaneously around the globe by people of all backgrounds, faiths and nationalities. More than a billion people participate in Earth Day events and campaigns every year. So you need to start celebrating as well!

We are celebrating Earth Day by releasing details of a new book:

Facing up to Global Warming
What is going on and how you can make a difference

The book written by Professor Nick Gray, Director of the Trinity Centre for the Environment at Trinity College Dublin, is based on his course  Living Sustainably: A guide to surviving a changing planet.  The book is to be published by Springer and is due out in the summer.
