There is a ne w chapter on how we can improve our grasp on geological time and, mindful o f the current interest in global change, new sections describe the greenhou se effect and address its possible future ramifications. In prose that is b oth concise and compelling and with a glossary and suggestions for further reading New Views on an Old Planet: A History of Global Change, makes earth history appealing to the general reader .

5 Barlow, Maude BLUE COVENANT: THE GLOBAL WATER CRISIS AND THE COMING BATTLE FOR THE RIGHT TO WATER

A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. In a book hailed by Publishers Weekly as a "passionate plea for access to w ater activism," Blue Covenant addresses an environmental crisis that-togeth er with global warming-poses one of the gravest threats to our survival. How did the world's most vital resource become imperiled? And what must we do to pull back from the brink? In "stark and nearly devastating prose" (Bo oklist), world-renowned activist and bestselling author Maude Barlow-who is featured in the acclaimed documentary Flow-discusses the state of the worl d's water. Barlow examines how water companies are reaping vast profits fro m declining supplies, and how ordinary people from around the world have ba nded together to reclaim the public's right to clean water, creating a gras sroots global water justice movement. While tracing the history of internat ional battles for the right to water, she documents the life-and-death stak es involved in the fight and lays out the actions that we as global citizen s must take to secure a water-just world for all. As people around the world turn their attention to the effects of climate change, Blue Covenant is a timely and important reminder for us to take heed of the global water crisis's impact on humans and the natural world.

7 Brown, Lester R. FULL PLANET, EMPTY PLATES: THE NEW GEOPOLITICS OF FOOD SCARCITY
W. W. Norton & Company 2012 0393344150 / 9780393344158 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. With food supplies tightening, countries are competing for the land and wat er resources needed to feed their people. With food scarcity driven by fall ing water tables, eroding soils, and rising temperatures, control of arable land and water resources is moving to center stage in the global struggle for food security. "In this era of tightening world food supplies, the abil ity to grow food is fast becoming a new form of geopolitical leverage. Food is the new oil," Lester R. Brown writes. What will the geopolitics of food look like in a new era dominated by scarcity and food nationalism? Brown outlines the political implications of land acquisitions by grain-importing countries in Africa and elsewhere as well as the world's shrinking buffers against poor harvests. With wisdom accumulated over decades of tracking agricultural issues, Brown exposes the increasingly volatile food situation the world is facing.

SAVING THE PLANET: HOW TO SHAPE AN ENVIRONMENTALLY SUBSTAINABLE GLOBAL ECON OMY, Brown, Lester R.
8 Brown, Lester R. SAVING THE PLANET: HOW TO SHAPE AN ENVIRONMENTALLY SUBSTAINABLE GLOBAL ECON OMY
W. W. Norton & Company 1991 0393308235 / 9780393308235 Paperback Very Good+ 
To remake our outmoded notions of economics--and to save the global environ ment--the Worldwatch Institute delivers a comprehensive, persuasive guide t o achieving a sustainable economy based on energy efficiency and reuse, rat her than waste, of resources. Using an analogy to the denial that ran rampa nt on the Titanic, the authors of the Institute's yearly State of the World series stress the urgent need to move away from a fossil-fuel economy in o rder to counteract global warming. ``Renewables'' are the key: Brown and hi s colleagues present tables demonstrating that wind and solar energy will c reate more jobs than coal and oil development will, and argue that the haza rds of nuclear waste and accident obviate the viability of nuclear power. ` `When it comes to solar technologies, today's political leaders, still capt ivated by coal and nuclear power, are akin to the steam engine's 18th-centu ry skeptics.'' The farming of rain forests' natural products (nuts, medicin es, rubber) could be substituted for clear-cutting; farming methods that pr event erosion, such as ``intercropping,'' could help feed a stable populati on (the authors argue that the earth, currently home to 5.4 billion people, cannot sustain more than 8 billion without catastrophic famine and disease ). ``Sustainable progress'' rather than standard economic growth would take into account equity for women, the poor, other species, and future generat ions. Indicators should be adjusted, the authors say, so that for every eco nomic gain that enhances GNP, such as the cutting and selling of trees, a d ebit--the destruction of that resource- -should be factored in.

13 Coats, Callum LIVING ENERGIES: AN EXPOSITION OF CONCEPTS RELATED TO THE THEORIES OF VIKTO R SCHAUBERGER
Gill & MacMillan, Limited 2001 0717133079 / 9780717133079 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Why are so many species of plant and animal disappearing? How is it that Earth is losing more fresh water than it is producing? What are the effects of chlorination and fluoridation of water? The answers to these and many more pressing environmental questions are to be found in this remarkable book - the first in-depth examination of the life and work of the brilliant forester, scientist and pioneering inventor, Viktor Schauberger. Schauberger's insights into Nature pivoted on the essential characteristics of water as a living and pulsating substance that energizes all of life, both organic and inorganic. He frequently asserted, ""Water is a living substance!""--an ideal to which many philosophers have subscribed. With his ground-breaking concepts on energy, biomagnetism and the true function of trees, he showed how a world that exploited its resources rather than cherishing them was doomed to destroy itself. Above all, he demonstrated how Nature's abundance is the result of a complex interaction of energies that actually create matter, not the other way around as orthodox science believes. For him energy was primary, and physical form the secondary effect.

15 Epstein, Alex THE MORAL CASE FOR FOSSIL FUELS
Portfolio 2014 1591847443 / 9781591847441 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
Could everything we know about fossil fuels be wrong? For decades, environmentalists have told us that using fossil fuels is a se lf-destructive addiction that will destroy our planet. Yet at the same time , by every measure of human well-being, from life expectancy to clean water to climate safety, life has been getting better and better. How can this be? The explanation, energy expert Alex Epstein argues in The Moral Case for Fo ssil Fuels, is that we usually hear only one side of the story. We're taugh t to think only of the negatives of fossil fuels, their risks and side effe cts, but not their positives-their unique ability to provide cheap, reliabl e energy for a world of seven billion people. And the moral significance of cheap, reliable energy, Epstein argues, is woefully underrated. Energy is our ability to improve every single aspect of life, whether economic or env ironmental. If we look at the big picture of fossil fuels compared with the alternative s, the overall impact of using fossil fuels is to make the world a far bett er place. We are morally obligated to use more fossil fuels for the sake of our economy and our environment. Drawing on original insights and cutting-edge research, Epstein argues that most of what we hear about fossil fuels is a myth. For instance . . . Myth: Fossil fuels are dirty. Truth: The environmental benefits of using fossil fuels far outweigh the risks. Fossil fuels don't take a naturally clean environment and make it dirty; they take a naturally dirty environment and make it clean. They don't take a naturally safe climate and make it dangerous; they take a naturally dangerous climate

Each chapter begins with an overview, and then examines a strand in the intricate web of life of which the forests are composed: plants, insects, reptiles, birds, and mammals. A final chapter discusses the people who live in the forests and are witness ing the consequences of our disregard for their most fundamental principle: that you do not destroy the environment on which you depend.

20 Friedman, Thomas WORLD IS FLAT
FSG Adult 2006 0374292795 / 9780374292799 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. The World Is Flat is Thomas L. Friedman's account of the great changes taki ng place in our time, as lightning-swift advances in technology and communi cations put people all over the globe in touch as never before--creating an explosion of wealth in India and China, and challenging the rest of us to run even faster just to stay in place. This updated and expanded edition fe atures more than a hundred pages of fresh reporting and commentary, drawn f rom Friedman's travels around the world and across the American heartland-- from anyplace where the flattening of the world is being felt. In The World Is Flat, Friedman at once shows "how and why globalization has now shifted into warp drive" (Robert Wright, Slate) and brilliantly demystifies the new flat world for readers, allowing them to make sense of the often bewildering scene unfolding before their eyes. With his inimitable ability to translate complex foreign policy and economic issues, he explains how the flattening of the world happened at the dawn of the twenty-first century; what it means to countries, companies, communities, and individuals; how governments and societies can, and must, adapt; and why terrorists want to stand in the way. More than ever, The World Is Flat is an essential update on globalization, its successes and discontents, powerfully illuminated by one of our most respected journalists.
