Becoming Animal: An Earthly Cosmology, Abram, David
1 Abram, David Becoming Animal: An Earthly Cosmology
Vintage 2011 0375713697 / 9780375713699 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. David Abram's first book, The Spell of the Sensuous has become a classic of environmental literature. Now he returns with a startling exploration of o ur human entanglement with the rest of nature. As the climate veers toward catastrophe, the innumerable losses cascading through the biosphere make vividly evident the need for a metamorphosis in our relation to the living land. For too long we've ignored the wild intelligence of our bodies, taking our primary truths from technologies that hold the living world at a distance. Abram's writing subverts this distance, drawing readers ever closer to their animal senses in order to explore, from within, the elemental kinship between the human body and the breathing Earth. The shape-shifting of ravens, the erotic nature of gravity, the eloquence of thunder, the pleasures of being edible: all have their place in this book.

Cambridge University Press 2002 0521447550 / 9780521447553 Paperback Very Good

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 .

Saving the Planet: How to Shape an Environmentally Substainable Global Econ omy, Brown, Lester R.
7 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.

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.

18 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.

Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2008 0374166854 / 9780374166854 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. Thomas L. Friedman's no. 1 bestseller The World Is Flat has helped millions of readers to see globalization in a new way. Now Friedman brings a fresh outlook to the crises of destabilizing climate change and rising competitio n for energy-both of which could poison our world if we do not act quickly and collectively. His argument speaks to all of us who are concerned about the state of America in the global future. Friedman proposes that an ambitious national strategy- which he calls "Geo- Greenism"-is not only what we need to save the planet from overheating; it is what we need to make America healthier, richer, more innovative, more pr oductive, and more secure. As in The World Is Flat, he explains a new era-the Energy-Climate era-throu gh an illuminating account of recent events. He shows how 9/11, Hurricane K atrina, and the flattening of the world by the Internet (which brought 3 bi llion new consumers onto the world stage) have combined to bring climate an d energy issues to Main Street. But they have not gone very far down Main S treet; the much-touted "green revolution" has hardly begun. With all that i n mind, Friedman sets out the clean-technology breakthroughs we, and the wo rld, will need; he shows that the ET (Energy Technology) revolution will be both transformative and disruptive; and he explains why America must lead this revolution-with the first Green President and a Green New Deal, spurre d by the Greenest Generation.

An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What W e Can Do About It, Gore, Al
20 Gore, Al An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What W e Can Do About It
Rodale Books 2006 1594865671 / 9781594865671 Paperback Very Good 
An Inconvenient Truth-Gore's groundbreaking, battle cry of a follow-up to t he bestselling Earth in the Balance-is being published to tie in with a doc umentary film of the same name. Both the book and film were inspired by a s eries of multimedia presentations on global warming that Gore created and d elivers to groups around the world. With this book, Gore, who is one of our environmental heroes-and a leading expert-brings together leading-edge res earch from top scientists around the world; photographs, charts, and other illustrations; and personal anecdotes and observations to document the fast pace and wide scope of global warming. He presents, with alarming clarity and conclusiveness-and with humor, too-that the fact of global warming is n ot in question and that its consequences for the world we live in will be d isastrous if left unchecked. This riveting new book-written in an accessibl e, entertaining style-will open the eyes of even the most skeptical.
