The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight: The Fate of the World and What We Can Do Before It's Too LateThe Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight: The Fate of the World and What We Can Do Before It’s Too Late by Thom Hartmann

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Review by Steve Bivans

What will we do when our fossil fuels run out? The picture that Hartmann paints isn’t a pretty one, but I’m afraid it’s probably accurate. The good news is that we won’t have to wait long to find out if he’s right. The bad news is that we won’t have to wait long to find out if he’s right, if he’s in fact right, and I think he is.

We are burning up stored sunlight every time we turn on a light in our home, turn the key in the ignition to drive to work, and every time we pick up a bottle of water at the convenience store because we’re too lazy to fill up a bottle at home, or walk to the fountain in the hallway at school. But those resources are finite, and even if they aren’t, the pollution they create buy burning them might kill us before they run out. Hartmann lays out the problem and pulls no punches. We must either face this issue head on, now, or Mother Nature will deal with us, and she’s really not happy.
