Books

The Decline and Fall of the Human Race  by M.C. MacDonald  (Free on-line book)

 

The Blessed Unrest by Paul Hawkin

"For the first time since life evolved, one species is now altering the physical, chemical, and biological features of the planet on a geological scale.  Scientists tell us of a litany of ecological disasters—climate change, toxic pollution, species extinction, marine depletion, deforestation—the depressing list can paralyze one with hopelessness and despair.  Fear can motivate immediate action in the short-run, but hope can be sustained. Paul Hawken's writings are always at the cutting edge of environmental thought, original, surprising and shot through with optimism.  Blessed Unrest is an uplifting perspective, engendering wonder and hope.  For all of us that are squirreling away in our individual small ways, it is inspiring to realize that millions of us can add up to an irresistible force. Read this book and shout "Hallelujah!" -David Suzuki, author of The Sacred Balance
