Eleanor Ashworth, Lennox Head

With the Amazon burning, I can imagine what the author and journalist Dahr Jamal is feeling.

Dahr Jamal’s book The end of ice is an amazing read, written with passion, wisdom, and honesty. Dahr through his adventures bears witness to our world, a living system that is dying.

Anthropogenic climate disruption is causing the destruction on the balances of earth’s eco-systems and biosphere that enable and maintain life on this planet.

The earth was our first teacher. Did we learn? It is now time for us all to stand up for, love, and connect with, and understand our natural world while we can. To get from our heads to our hearts I recommend this book to everyone.
