Trump defines deal-making—something he clearly loves more than anything else in the world —one of the most important factors is the ability to deliver the goods. And he does in The Art of the Deal.” —New York Post “THE MAN HAS FLAIR. It should be read because Trump is one of the Great Characters.

depends on it
Excerpted from Trump and a Post Truth World. Order your copy now. Self-Correction at the Leading-Edge. On balance, the response to the recent election of Donald Trump as the next president of the United States has been extreme, visceral, and loudly vocal, on all sides. The supporters of Trump have often been nasty and mean in their triumphal. The Trump Century. BOOK EXCERPT: Fox Business's #1 personality shows how Donald Trump has redefined how every politician and public figure will interact with the world-for the next hundred years. In the early 2000s, America was in economic decline, under attack, and weighed down by one-sided agreements.
This summer, former Vice President Al Gore returns to the big screen with An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, sounding the alarm on the climate crisis transforming our planet and sharing the truth that the solutions are in our hands – but we have to act now.

We can solve climate change
The overwhelming majority of the world’s climate scientists agree: man-made climate change is a reality. Unless we act now, temperatures will rise beyond our control.
We have the means
We know how to stop climate change, and we have the tools to do it. We start by ditching the dirty fossil fuels devastating our climate and our health and switching to clean, reliable, and affordable renewable energies like wind and solar.
There are real dangers
We're looking at a future of seas climbing up our shores; devastating floods, droughts, and storms becoming more frequent facts of life; seasons changing beyond recognition; and dangerous consequences for our health we’re only beginning to understand.
It makes economic sense
Changing technology means renewables keep getting cheaper, more accessible, and more widespread everywhere from rooftops to power plants. Renewable energy costs the same or less than energy from fossil fuels. In 2014, numerous countries' economies grew while their carbon emissions levels dropped.
It's our duty
We have a moral responsibility to each other and to our children to address this crisis. This is our one beautiful and deeply precious home.
we're doing it together
We’re bringing together people from all walks of life and corners of the earth to support a strong climate agreement in Paris that puts us on the path to zero carbon emissions and the healthy and prosperous future we want. When the world speaks with one voice, our leaders have to listen.

A provocative and balanced examination of our current social and political situation—by a cutting–edge philosopher of our times. The world is in turmoil. As populist waves roil in the UK, Europe, Turkey, Russia, Asia—and most visibly, the U.S., with the election of Donald Trump—nationalist and extremist political forces threaten the progress made over many decades. Democracies are reeling in the face of nihilism and narcissism. How did we get here? And how, with so much antagonism, cynicism, and discord, can we mend the ruptures in our societies? In this provocative work, philosopher Ken Wilber applies his Integral approach to explain how we arrived where we are and why there is cause for hope. He lays much of the blame on a failure at the progressive, leading edge of society. This leading edge is characterized by the desire to be as just and inclusive as possible, and to it we owe the thrust toward women’s rights, the civil rights movement, the environmental movement, and the concern for oppression in all its forms. This is all evolutionarily healthy. But what is unhealthy is a creeping postmodernism that is elitist, “politically correct,” insistent on an egalitarianism that is itself paradoxically hierarchical, and that looks down on “deplorables.” Combine this with the techno-economic demise of many traditional ways of making a living, and you get an explosive mixture. As Wilber says, for some Trump voters: “Everywhere you are told that you are fully equal and deserve immediate and complete empowerment, yet everywhere you are denied the means to actually achieve it. You suffocate, you suffer, and you get very, very mad.” It is only when members of society’s leading edge can heal themselves that a new, Integral evolutionary force can emerge to move us beyond the social and political turmoil of our current time to offer genuine leadership toward greater wholeness.
