This book is a sweeping historical investigation into the origins of apocalyptic thought and a compelling survey of the dramatic crises we face in the twenty-first century, and while it does not go into the concept of Danny Bloom's polar cities for future survivors of climate chaos in the next 100 to 500 years, it's a good read. READ IT. ''The Last Myth'' explains why apocalyptic beliefs are surging into the American mainstream today. Derrick Jensen calls it "an important and moving analysis"; Thom Hartmann says it is "a must read"; Terry Tempest Williams says The Last Myth is a book "that should be brought to the dinner table for lively and transformative conversation with family and friends.Danny Bloom says "The Last Myth is the first book to go where no human minds have gone before, and it lays bare why our descendants will very likely be living in POLAR CITIES by the year 2500 A.D. -- if not sooner. Read this book and weep ...at what humanity has done to itself as climate change and global warming threaten to put an end to the entire human species within the next 1000 years."
