Description This Crazy Time de Tzeporah Berman:

Passionate, profound and funny, Berman is inspiring people from all walks of life to get off the sidelines and fight the good fight--and win. This unique book--part manifesto from a leader, part humorous activist memoir from a soccer mom--offers a wryly honest, behind-the-scenes, ultimately uplifting look at the state of the planet. For almost 20 years, Tzeporah Berman has been one of our most influential environmentalists. A founder of ForestEthics and PowerUp Canada, she was instrumental in shaping the tactics and concerns of the modern environmental movement. In her early 20s she faced nearly one thousand criminal charges and 6 years in prison for her role organizing blockades in Canada's rainforest. She later transformed her tactics and sat down with CEOs and political leaders to reshape their policies and practices. In her new role at Greenpeace International she is fighting the problem of our time: climate change. "This Crazy Time" is an impassioned plea for a better world. TZEPORAH BERMAN is a co-founder of ForestEthics and PowerUp Canada, and the former Greenpeace International Climate and Energy Co-Director. She has been designing and managing environmental campaigns for almost twenty years. She is known for her role in coordinating the largest civil disobedience in Canada's history, the logging blockades in the rainforests of Clayoquot Sound in 1993, during which she was arrested and charged with 857 counts of criminal aiding and abetting. She is also known for her work in creating unlikely alliances with the logging industry and major paper and wood consumers that have resulted in the permanent protection of millions of acres of old-growth forests. She was one of the experts in Leonardo DiCaprio's documentary, "The 11th Hour. "The Royal BC Museum has included her in a permanent exhibition as one of the 150 people who have changed BC's history. She has been lauded as "Canada's Queen of Green" in a cover story in "Reader's Digest "and was recognized by the "Utne Reader "as one of 50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World. MARK LEIREN-YOUNG is the author of Never Shoot a Stampede Queen," "winner of the 2009 Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour, and The Green Chain--Nothing Is Ever Clear Cut."
