Accolades for Jim Ball: "Jim Ball has spent the last two decades honestly and reflectively exploring the devastating consequences of global warming. He comprehends the issue from every angle - science, climatology, sociology, agriculture, forestry, business, psychology, and industry. But his call for us to do something is rooted in another discipline - Christianity. Beginning with our creation in the image and likeness of God, Jim views us as caretakers, stewards, and co-laborers with God in the responsible care for creation." - Dan Boone, President of Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, TN
