Publisher Description

Global Chorus is a remarkable, illustrated collection of 365 daily meditations around some very large and increasingly crucial themes:

“Do you think that humanity can find a way past the current global environmental and social crises? Will we be able to create the conditions necessary for our own survival as well as that of other species on the planet? What would these conditions look like? In summary, then, and in the plainest of terms, do we have hope, and can we do it?”

The contributors include writers, environmentalists, spiritual leaders, politicians, professors, doctors, athletes, business people, farmers, chefs, yogis, painters, architects, musicians, TV personalities, humanitarians, children, concerned students and senior citizens, carpenters, factory workers, activists, CEOs, scientists—essentially people who have something passionate and insightful to say about humanity’s place on Earth. Well-known people on the list include environmentalists such as David Suzuki, Paul Hawken and Jane Goodall; scientists such as Stephen Hawking and Edward O. Wilson; personalities such as Jamie Oliver, Maya Angelou, Les Stroud and Bruce Cockburn; humanitarians such as Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu; political figures such as Mikhail Gorbachev, Justin Trudeau and Elizabeth May; writers like Temple Grandin, Farley Mowat and John Ralston Saul; and spiritual leaders like His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet and Lama Surya Das. The vast majority of the contributions contained within Global Chorus are completely original, with some coming from public speeches or previously published sources.

And all contributors to this fundraising book have generously and graciously donated their time and efforts, as proceeds from the sales of Global Chorus will be distributed to a select group of organizations helping to recover, protect and sustain life on Earth.

Global Chorus

Todd MacLean has gathered quite a selection of tree hugging cronies to make a plea to all like-minded liberal hypocrites to come to action. Come to action to reverse climate change is the main theme. I guess these people must think they are a deity stronger than God, because they are working on a premise that is unrealistic. Like Dr. Evil, but in a pure form they think they can somehow control the World's climate, by putting their sappy heads together. They are also working on the five pillars of Liberal stupidity, which include hysteria, denial of reality, thought control, name-calling and the perennial favourite-the projection of guilt. I happen to enjoy the life which technology has afforded me, do my utmost to not pollute, I recycle, conserve and think about every aspect of my day to day existence, but I am not going to be cowed into swallowing this wealth redistribution scam by a bunch of left-wing hypocrites like David Suzuki and Bruce Coburn and all the rest of these quacks that contributed to this book.
