Covers are square and with minor wear. Ships Safe and Fast. The authors survey the ways in which we are losing our ability to survive biologically and present new approaches to regaining it. They examine our planet's green life-layer from every point of view: cultural and artistic, religious, ecological, economic, and scientific. These world respected botanists highlight the true worth of the Plant Kingdom for our lives - from Amazonian rain forests to African violets or tropical foliage plants at the windowsill. India and other lands help provide us with a remarkable arsenal of plant-derived medicines that cure leukemia and other malignancies, that control hypertension, and that also prevent the body from rejecting transplanted organs. Mexico, for instance, produces the wild yams that provide chemical raw materials for the contraceptive pill. And in Kenya, we meet a young wife who brings her to a respected dispenser of traditional medicines extracted from jungle greenery. ; Smithsonian Institute; Color Photographs; 11.20 X 8.80 X 1 inches; 255 pages

Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square with minor wear. Ships Safe and Fast. In the 25 years since the first Earth Day in 1970, the environmental movement has spawned a new generation of scientists asking vital questions about the true state and fate of the planet. But, surprisingly, some of their answers -- and even the questions themselves -- contradict the movement's deepest beliefs. Why are reserves of oil, precious metals, and other natural resources more plentiful than ever before? Why has the population growth of the twentieth century brought rising standards of living for nearly all? In The True State of the Planet ten premier scholars shatter the myths of overpopulation, food, global warming, and pesticides, while redirecting environmentalists' concerns to the far more urgent problems of fisheries, fresh water, and third-world pollution -- and the political causes behind them.; 8.98 X 7.01 X 1.34 inches; 472 pages

Over the last few centuries, science has usurped domains of knowledge that were once the province of religion. At the same time, however, both science and religion have enforced strict boundaries throughout. Science can describe the world to us, but it cannot tell us about meaning or values. This is a compelling case for breaching this barrier - in effect, for a reunification of science and religion. ; B&W Photographs; 9.30 X 6.40 X 1.20 inches; 329 pages

13 Bowen, Mark Censoring Science Inside the Political Attack on Dr. James Hansen and the Truth of Global Warming
New York Dutton Adult 2007 0525950141 / 9780525950141 Hardcover Very Good- in Very Good dust jacket 
Unmarked. ; Book Description; Mylar and paper (Demco) protective cover. Dust jacket is intact with no nicks or tears. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are shiny, square and with minor wear. From acclaimed writer and physicist Mark Bowen, Censoring Science tells the true story of the Bush administration's censorship of the world's preeminent climatologist, and the science behind global warming that they do not want you to know. Preeminent climatologist and leading NASA scientist Dr. James Hansen has been studying climate for over three decades. It was his testimony to a Senate committee in 1988 that first brought the threat of global warming to the world's attention. In January 2006, news broke that the Bush administration had been attempting to censor Dr. Hansen— obscuring his message and suppressing the vast body of his scientific work, which unequivocally demonstrates the reality and immense danger of global warming. Now, for the first time and with unfiltered access, writer and physicist Mark Bowen finally tells the exclusive story of Hansen's decades-long battle to bring the truth about global warming to light. Censoring Science illuminates the real science behind global warming and maintains that we can still prevent environmental disaster, while both strengthening our economy and our national security. In the tradition of Ron Suskind's blockbuster bestseller, The Price of Loyalty, Censoring Science exposes the truth behind the administration's spin doctors, and shares the inside story of one of the most important and influential scientists of our time. ; 9.10 X 6 X 1.30 inches; 336 pages

15 Brown, Lester R. Plan B Rescuing a Planet under Stress and a Civilization in Trouble
New York W. W. Norton & Company 2003 0393325237 / 9780393325232 Softcover Very Good 
Unmarked. ; Book Description; Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square with minor wear. A bold new plan for those concerned about rising temperatures, population projections, and spreading water scarcity. Lester Brown notes that if the environmental trends of recent decades continue, the global economy will soon begin to unravel. The food sector, he believes, is the most vulnerable. Record-high temperatures and falling water tables are already taking the edge off grain harvests in some countries, including China, the world's largest grain producer. The wake-up call will come, Brown believes, when 1.3 billion Chinese consumers with an $80 billion trade surplus start competing with Americans for U. S. Grain, driving up food prices. Rising food prices could create political instability in low-income countries, disrupting global economic progress. At that point, it will be clear that business as usualPlan Ais not working. In Plan B, Brown outlines a World War II-type mobilization to stabilize climate by restructuring the global energy economy and to stabilize population by investing heavily in health care, family planning, and the education of girls in developing countries; B&W Illustrations; 8.10 X 5.40 X 0.80 inches; 285 pages

16 Cajete, Gregory A People's Ecology Explorations in Sustainable Living
Sante Fe, New Mexico Clear Light Pub 1999 1574160281 / 9781574160284 Softcover Very Good 
Unmarked. ; Book Description; Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square with minor wear. A People's Ecology: Explorations in Sustainable Living presents a tapestry of perspectives on food and the interplay of health, cultural ecology, and environment, which are the fabric and foundation of all sustainable living. It offers personal stories, documented information, traditional understandings, and speculations on future directions. Each contribution calls on us to reclaim our human heritage of "caring for our home fires" -- a metaphor that can inspire the revitalization of our connections to the earth, all living things, and each other.The writers examine the underlying ecology of sustainable living rooted in the historical traditions, environmental practices, and sense of place of peoples of the Southwest; and they describe the impact that disruption of this way of life continues to have on health, well-being, and communal identity. Drawing on an Indigenous paradigm of "healthy environment, healthy culture, healthy people, " this book explores possibilities of applying the principles of sustainable living in both traditional and non-traditional communities. ; B&W Photographs; 8.30 X 5.70 X 0.90 inches; 283 pages
