Two of America's most talented activists team up to deliver a bold and hilarious satire of modern environmental policy in this fully illustrated graphic novel. The U.S. government gives robot machines from space permission to eat the earth in exchange for bricks of gold. A one-eyed bunny rescues his friends from a corporate animal-testing laboratory. And two little girls figure out the secret to saving the world from both of its enemies (and it isn't by using energy-efficient light bulbs or biodiesel fuel). As the World Burns will inspire you to do whatever it takes to stop ecocide before it's too late.

The book does a good job of laying out how personal actions will not be enough to save the environment. Unfortunately there is no viable solution offered (the attempt made is feeble). The animals are not going to save us. The other exception I take is when oil companies are blamed for all the emissions they cause. Oil companies are just selling us the oil because that is what we want. As much as I hate corporations we the consumers are responsible for all the emissions. With that fact who is the violence that is advocated to be directed against? My neighbor drives a car so I should shoot him or blow up his car? That path is doomed to failure. Apparently that leaves us with no hope at all. Thanks for all the fish...
