  • The Centre Brainby Steve Adams

    SPCK 2017; US$ 9.99

    When facing a red light, what can you say to turn it green? Hooking an audience? Sweating in a job interview? The results of what you say aren’t coincidence.

    The European Union has powerful resources at its disposal to tackle global warming; together, the countries of the EU are global leaders in the use of renewables.
