A companion book to this summer’s Live Earth concerts will come out June 26. Not to worry, it will be printed on environmentally responsible paper. Al Gore, a co-chair of the Live Earth concert series, will feature Madonna, the Police, among others. All proceeds will go to the Alliance for Climate Protection, founded by former Vice President.
The Live Earth Global Warming Survival Handbook: 77 Essential Skills to Stop Climate Change — or Live Through It, is a 160-page paperback release with an announced first printing of 200,000. It was written by David De Rothschild, founder of Sculpt the Future, a non-profit environmental foundation, and includes a foreword by Rob Reiner.
“This innovative and practical handbook supports the crucial mission and message of the Live Earth concerts and aims to inspire each of us to play a role, to do our share, in confronting and attempting to solve the climate crisis,” Steven Pleshette Murphy, president and CEO of publisher Rodale Books, said.
“Live Earth will help us reach a tipping point that’s needed to move corporations and governments to take decisive action to solve the climate crisis,” Gore said. Rodale also published Gore’s companion book to his Academy Award-winning documentary on global warming, An Inconvenient Truth.
