Bill McKibben is one of my favorite commentators. Check out his recent article in " The Atlantic Online" about the forests of the east, the bio diversity they gently and tenuously hold, and the threats they face.
An Explosion of Green
Mr. McKibben wrote the first book for a general audience about the threat of climate change, The End of Nature, back in 1989. He organized Step it UP 2007, the largest day of protest about climate change in the nation's history.

We are washing away the foundations of our existence on every front. It is high time we move from crashing about on the planet like a bull in china shop and find a way to go forward with intent. We must find systems of living based on sustainability. The systems and tools exist, it is up to each of us to adopt them.
