I’m delighted to host the blog tour today for Planet in Peril, an anthology of words and images I purchased myself at the pre-order stage. I shall save my review for a future date, however, as today I’m handing over to Fly on the Wall to share a couple of poems and entice you with the power Planet in Peril has to offer……
When the sciences and the arts begin to work together, a powerful force is created. This anthology was founded on the belief that words have the power to change. Through poetry, photography and art, creatives across the globe, from the age of 8 to 80, have united to express the urgency of global warming, facing the facts but never losing hope.
“A new metaphor is as useful in the climate fight as a new solar panel design. We need poets engaged in this battle, and this volume is proof that in fact they’re in the vanguard!”Bill McKibben, Schumann Distinguished Scholar at Middlebury College and leader of the anti-carbon campaign group 350.org.
20% of the profits from this book will be donated to The Climate Coalition and WWF.
