The DeSmogBlog team was thinking up new ways to thank all of our loyal readers and also keep spreading the word about energy issues and global warming. So we’ve decided that we’ll run a monthly book giveaway event.

The give-away is really simple. We’ve combined our monthly newsletter subscription list with the book give-away draw, so every month we’ll pick five names from our subscriber list and send them a copy of a recently released book.

So all you do to enter is click on the “enter here” link in the right hand column where it says “DeSmogBlog Monthly Book Contest,” fill out the form (takes 15 seconds) and then kick back and wait until the end of the month when we’ll announce the winners in our newsletter.

This month we’re giving away 5 signed copies of Rainforest Action Network Executive Director Michael Brune’s new book Coming Clean: Breaking America’s Addiction to Oil and Coal.

Coming clean is an in-depth look at how America’s addiction to fossil fuels is corrupting third world countries, draining our resources and wreaking havoc on our climate. Brune outlines his vision for how we can get off fossil fuel and move to a sustainable clean energy economy.

So please join up, pass this on to your friends and cross your fingers!
