2012地球日的『spend』考量

     我收信看到『How will you spend Earth Day in 2012?』標題,細看內容後,自己也笑了出來:原本我猜『spend』,指的是利用時間投入行動,像在自然課裡讓孩子們整理『2012世界地球日』(新聞 )的資訊:今年的主題是「Mobilize the Earth」~拯救地球刻不容緩!

     不過,『spend』也是指花費~美國國家學院出版(The National Academies Press,NAP)整理了前十項有關氣候變遷與能源利用的出版資源,在地球日有『折扣』喔!可以買書自學也可以送給好友。

     再來個會心一笑的認真整理~十本書都可以免費線上閱讀,若您登錄會員,也可以下載PDF檔全文喔!可以不花錢但一定得花時間~不過,要愛護這個讓我們可以永續居住的星球,真也要刻不容緩才是!

      以下的書名連結是『線上閱讀』,也附上頁數、不必spend的美金定價資訊喔!
