Today’s Revolution in Weather! — William J. Baxter (1954).

William Baxter recognized the global warming trend in the early 1950s and foresaw its impact on markets and the economy. He points to numerous factors and statistics to support his thesis and then provides advice on how to run your business and portfolio accordingly. If that isn’t intriguing enough, the Virgil Partch cartoons may get your attention. As one of the most prolific cartoonists and illustrators of the ’40s and ’50s, his style is recognizable to most Baby Boomers.

"The current model is global suicide. We need a revolution. Revolutionary thinking. Revolutionary action. Natural resources are becoming more and more scarce," Ban Ki-Moon.

Dogs and Puppies — Frances Trego Montgomery (1908).
Frances Trego Montgomery said that she got the ideas for her books by inviting groups of children to her house “between dinner and their bed time.” Together they would spin yarns and develop stories. Her book, The Wonderful Electric Elephant (1903), is considered the first science fiction novel for children. The featured title is illustrated by Hugo von Hofsten, the Swedish-born artist who previously worked for the Saturday Evening Post and The Chicago Tribune as illustrator. 
“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring—it was peace,”Milan Kundera.
