In two short years, Adam Werbach has mobilized the aging Sierra Club, fired the imagination of the media, and fueled a grassroots environmental movement among Gen-Xers that most people would have thought impossible. In Act Now, Apologize Later, he projects an enthusiastic, optimistic message that underscores what we have achieved in our approach to the environment and emphasizes the power of individuals to bring about change. Written with the humor, passion, and zeal that have already inspired hundreds of thousands of people, Act Now, Apologize Later is an important call to arms in a war America must not lose.
