From Henry Thoreau to Rachel Carson, we've always had great writers & photographers to inspire us and teach us about the environment. Now it's time to tell your story.
The Union of Concerned Scientists and Penguin Classics—along with bookstores across the country—are encouraging all aspiring writers and photographers to submit their personal stories and images about global warming for publication in a new online book to be published in 2009, Thoreau's Legacy: American Stories about Global Warming.
The deadline to submit is November 15, 2008. The winning essays and photographs will be included in the online book and in a limited edition print version of the book. We hope you'll consider submitting a story or photograph. For more information, visit http://www.ucsusa.org/americanstories/.
