It’s a great new perspective on the green movement.

Small is Beautiful – Schumacher
Limits to Growth – Meadows
His Dark Materials – Phillip Pullman, climate change is one of the themes used in this fantasy trilogy so wouldn’t say prompted to think – rather i made the connection there

They go beyond the typical “take these steps/suggestions to better the environment and stop global warming”. Be prepared when reading them, as the information is shockingly vivid and disheartening, yet factual.

Cradle to Cradle, McDonough and Braungart
Omnivore’s Dilemma, Michael Pollan
Walden, Henry David Thoreau
Crimes Against Nature, Robert F Kennedy Jr.
This Moment on Earth, John Kerry
World Changing, Alex Steffen

Next on my list is Silent Spring by Rachel Carson!

I’ll just keep making an actual difference, with the EPA, by engineering our future.
