The Fire Dogs of Climate Change: An Inspirational Call to Action

The Fire Dogs of Climate Change: An Inspirational Call to Action

by Sally Andrew




The intention of this portfolio of creative essays, real-life success stories, and hard-hitting facts about global warming is to investigate the emotional and spiritual components of humankind's relationship to the world. By making a connection between the states of heart and mind and the ability to act, the inner fire dogs—the guardians and watchdogs of the earth—are awakened, especially in those who do not specialize in activism or environmental concerns. Through the stories' focus on hope and positive action, urgent climate-change issues are easily accessible, making this collection also ideal for organizations, conferences, and government groups looking for ways to inspire, educate, and take effective action.
