COUNTDOWN Our Last, Best Hope for a Future on Earth?

by | Read by Adam Grupper

Contemporary Culture • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

The author of the popular THE WORLD WITHOUT US takes on more practical environmental concerns. His vivid stories and interviews emphasize the human population aspect of our planetary crisis, an aspect often avoided for political reasons. Narrator Adam Grupper’s deep, precise voice does justice to Weisman’s powerful material. Together they present the horrors of crowded cities, depleted ecosystems, and willful religious ignorance around the world with clarity but without hyperbole. Weisman, great journalist that he is, makes his points through memorable stories. Grupper, better known as an actor, has a compelling voice and a gift for narrating. Watch for him in the future. I certainly will. F.C. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2014]
