“If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats we call her nuts. But when people pathologically hoard so much cash that they impoverish the entire nation, we put them on the cover of Fortune magazine and pretend that they are role models.”

AN ONLINE ANTHOLOGY


Penguin Classics Joins the Unionof Concerned Scientists in Call for a New Generation of Environmental Writers

Penguin Classics has partnered with the Unionof Concerned Scientists to carry the legacy of classic environmental writers Emerson and Thoreau into the 21st century. The literary publisher and science group are inviting aspiring writers and photographers to submit their personal stories and images about global warming for a new online book, Thoreau's Legacy: American Stories about Global Warming, to be published by the Unionof Concerned Scientists in 2009.

"From Henry David Thoreau to Rachel Carson, writers have played a profound role in drawing attention to our natural environment and inspiring people to protect it," said Elda Rotor, executive editor of Penguin Classics, publisher of some of the greatest environmental works ever written.

To participate, contributors must write a 200- to 500-word first-person account of global warming that relates to their life or the world around them: a special place that they want to protect; people, animals or activities they love that are threatened by a warmer climate; or the steps they are taking to stem the tide of global warming. Or, they can send a photo related to these topics. The best submissions will be included in the online book and in a limited-edition hardcover version. The submission period closes November 15, 2008.

"The writings of a new generation can inspire Americans to take on the challenge of global warming and save our natural—and national—heritage," said Kevin Knobloch, president of the Unionof Concerned Scientists. "What better way to get the word out about this book project than through a global publisher of classic literature?"

Booksellers across the country are displaying easels and free bookmarks publicizing the project. The project will be supported by a major print and online publicity campaign, as well as a 25-city radio satellite tour, and national and trade advertising.

Contributors can submit their essays or photographs at:
