Heaven + Earth - Global Warming: The Missing Science, Ian Plimer
8 Ian Plimer Heaven + Earth - Global Warming: The Missing Science
Connor Court Publishing 228164 Australia 2009 1921421142 / 9781921421143 Softcover Near Fine Condition Climate, sea level and ice sheets have always changed, and the changes observed today are less than those of the past. Climate changes are cyclical and are driven by the Earth's position in the galaxy, the Sun, wobbles in the Earth's orbit, ocean currents and plate tectonics. In previous times, atmospheric carbon dioxide was far higher than at present yet did not drive climate change. No runaway greenhouse effect or acid oceans occurred during times of excessively high carbon dioxide. During past glaciations, carbon dioxide was far higher than today. The non-scientific popular political view is that humans change climate. Do we have reason for concern about possible human-induced climate change? 503 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

The Revenge of Gaia - Why The Earth is Fighting Back and How We Can Still Save Humanity, James Lovelock
9 James Lovelock The Revenge of Gaia - Why The Earth is Fighting Back and How We Can Still Save Humanity
Allen Lane 226899 Great Britain 2006 0713999144 / 9780713999143 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine Lovelock's unique authority and original perspective sets this book apart from other books on environmental change. He speaks as a planetary physician with more than forty years' experience of thinking about how to respond to the Earth's needs as a living organism. Illustrated with examples drawn from his experiences around the world, Lovelock draws many radical conclusions, most controversially a passionate advocacy of nuclear energy. This, he argues, is not only a secure, safe and reliable source of energy but also the only way to counter the lethal heat waves and rising sea levels, which will increasingly threaten civilisations. Lovelock argues that the only way for humankind to come to terms with Gaia now, and have a chance of surviving, is to embrace science and technology, not reject them. This is his passionate manifesto of how to do that and so lessen our impact on the Earth before it is too late. 177 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

The Man Who Planted Trees - Wood Engravings by Michael McCurdy, Jean Giono
10 Jean Giono The Man Who Planted Trees - Wood Engravings by Michael McCurdy
Chelsea Green Publishing 227652 USA 1985 0930031067 / 9780930031060 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Jean Giono's beautiful allegorical tale is legendary. Written in the 1950's, its message was ahead of its time, inspiring readers to rediscoverthe harmonies of the countryside and prevent its willful destruction. The narrator, journeying by foot across the barren plains of the lower Alps, has his thirst assuaged by the well water drawn by the shepherd Elzeaerd Bouffier. Here begins the subtle parable which Giono weaves of the life-giving shepherd who chooses to live alone and carry out the work of God. Over forty years the desolate hills and lifeless villages which sooppressed the traveler are transformed by the dedication of one man. All with the help of a few acorns. Giono's hope was to set in motion a worldwide reforestation program that would rejuvenate the earth. "The Man Who Planted Trees" is a hymn to creation and a purveyor of confidence in man's ability to change his-indeed the world's-lot. Review Citations: Ingram Advance 05/01/2005 52 pages.

Routledge 225352 London 1995 0415114683 / 9780415114684 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket The influence of human economies and cultures on ecosystems is particularly striking in the new worlds into which Europeans have expanded over the past five hundred years. Using a comparative and multidisciplinary approach, Beinart and Coates examine this neglected aspect of the history of settler incursion and dominance in two frontier nations, the USA and South Africa. They also seek to explain change in indigenous ideas and practices towards the environment, and discuss the rise of popular environmentalism up to the present day. 120 pages.
