Read full description of the books:
Without oil to use as fuel, fertilizer, and raw material, the food supply for the planet is adequate for no more than one billion people. By 1999 the world population will be at least six billion. What will happen when the oil supplies begin to run out? How can disaster be avoided? In this call to consciousness that combines spirituality and ecology, Hartmann addresses these questions, exposes the pervasive cultural insanity that threatens the Earth, and provides realistic answers.

Read information about the authorThom Hartmann is a progressive radio talk show host, author, and retired businessman who was born and grew up in Michigan.
His daily progressive radio talk show is syndicated and distributed to radio and television stations nationwide and in Europe and Africa.
Thom has spent much of his life working with and for the Attention Deficit Disorder: A Different Perception. In the book, Thom hypothesized that traits that were advantageous in a hunting culture - being alert to every sound in the environment, willingness to take risks, etc - became not so helpful when society switched to farming, and the prized trait was the ability to stick patiently to a task.
The hunters and farmers theory of ADHD children is the idea that they are the "hunters" who are able to take in continuous stimuli and react quickly to changing circumstances. Whereas, non-ADHD children are the "farmers" who are patient, methodical, and focused over long periods of time. Unfortunately for ADHD children, traditional schools teach for the patient "farmers", and not the alert and quick reacting "hunters."
In 1998 the New England Salem Children's Trust established The Hunter School and began to serve children who struggle in traditional education settings because of the educational and behavioral differences associated with ADHD. Hunter School, the Hunter School is a small, non-profit residential and day school where young boys and girls with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Asperger's Syndrome are nurtured, educated and celebrated.
As an entrepreneur, Hartmann's also founded several successful businesses including Woodley Herber Company which operated until 1978. In 1983 he founded International Wholesale Travel and its retail subsidiary Sprayberry Travel and the Atlanta advertising agency Chandler, MacDonald, Stout, Schneiderman & Poe, Inc., which did business as The Newsletter Factory.
He sold his interest in that company in 1996 and retired to Vermont, although he and Louise now live in Washington D.C., complete with a radio studio and their mascot attack-cat, Higgins.
