Climate Controversy 2013 Student Essayists Publication

Book signing reception for Climate Controversy 2013 on Sunday, April 14, 2013. The essays of Jefferson County, WV student winners of the 2013 Common Ground Student Essay Competition are included in the publication. Top climate scientist contributors featured in the publication are Drs. John P. Abraham, Associate Professor, University of St. Thomas, Michael C. MacCracken, Chief Scientist, Climate Institute in Washington, D.C., and George M. Woodwell, Founder, Director Emeritus of the Wood Hole Research Center. The full color summary of climate science is affordably-priced at $24.99 and available for purchase with proceeds benefiting a donation to the nonprofit environmental work of the Natural Resource Defense Council.

Dr. Pamela Ellis, executive director of Books Motivate Foundation and book project visionary, stated, “The ongoing purpose for the publication of Climate Controversy 2013 is to provide a philosophical and scientific framework for education and community action in regards to the stark reality of climate change. The 2013 Common Ground student essayists and expert climate scientist contributors inform the public-at-large why reducing the human-induced, or anthropogenic, climate changes that have begun can no longer be ignored by anyone. It is our hope that people everywhere will take ownership of this critical environmental policy issue.” Dr. Ellis further discussed Climate Controversy 2013 highlights during a presentation at the Shepherdstown Community Club monthly dinner meeting on April 16, 2013.
