THE GLOBAL WARMING READER
edited by Bill McKibben
This is a book for all of us: students, activists, Earthlings. Edited by one of the most widely-respected writers on the environment today, GWR is a comprehensive resource that gathers seminal texts and voices on climate change from its discovery in the late 19th century to the present.
The collection, including criticism of the very concept of global warming by doubters U.S. Sen. James Inhofe and Michael Crichton, attempts to answer two all-important questions: What is happening to our planet—and what can we do about it?
See a recent Bill McKibben interview about his role in what he calls “the largest environmental protest in a generation.” Ironically, his interview is preceded by an ExonMobil spot.
DEEP ECOLOGY for the 21st CENTURY
edited by George Sessions
What is happening to our planet? What can be done about it?
This book proposes that the answers will come through a fundamental change in the way people relate with the environment. Instead of thinking of nature as a resource to be used for human needs, Deep Ecology argues that the true value of nature is intrinsic – independent of its usefulness to mankind.
Emerging in the 1980s as an influential philosophical, social, and political movement, Deep Ecology has shaped current environmental debate among leading activists and policymakers
The book takes you on a heady ride through thirty-nine articles by leading writers and thinkers – each offering perspective on this new approach to environmentalism.
One of the primary contributors to the book is renowned eco-philosopher, Arne Naess. Hear his thoughts on Deep Ecology:
