An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore
1 Al Gore An Inconvenient Truth
Bloomsbury 230179 London 2006 0747589062 / 9780747589068 Trade Paperback Near Fine Condition No Dust Jacket "An Inconvenient Truth" Gore's groundbreaking, battle cry of a follow-up to the bestselling "Earth in the Balance" is being published to tie in with a documentary film of the same name. Both the book and film were inspired by a series of multimedia presentations on global warming that Gore created and delivers to groups around the world. With this book, Gore, who is one of our environmental heroes and a leading expert brings together leading-edge research 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 not in question and that its consequences for the world we live in will be disastrous if left unchecked. This riveting new book written in an accessible, entertaining style will open the eyes of even the most skeptical." 325 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1.

Ecological Imperialism The Biological Expansion of Europe 900-1900, Alfred W. Crosby
2 Alfred W. Crosby Ecological Imperialism The Biological Expansion of Europe 900-1900
Cambridge University Press 232555 USA 1991 0521336139 / 9780521336130 Softcover Very Good Condition People of European descent form the bulk of the population in most of the temperate zones of the world - North America, Australia and New Zealand. The military successes of European imperialism are easy to explain; in many cases they were a matter of firearms against spears. But as Alfred Crosby explains in his highly original and fascinating book, the Europeans' displacement and replacement of the native peoples in the temperate zones was more a matter of biology than of military conquest. 368 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: History; History; Science::Ecology. ISBN: 0521336139. ISBN/EAN: 9780521336130. Inventory No: 232555. Paperback

Time To Change, David Suzuki
3 David Suzuki Time To Change
Allen & Unwin 225143 Australia 1993 1863735690 / 9781863735698 Softcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket The 1990s, Suzuki advocates, is a time for change. Examples he examines are, for instance: the garbage clogging our cities, the disappearance of fish and fisheries from our coasts, the changes to our waterways, the world-wide starvation and global warming. David Suzuki considers the realms of science, politics and economics to find not only the source of many of our problems, but also the ground on which we can, and cannot, place our hope for the future. Although the acts and words of individual scientists, politicians and economists can give us some reason for optimism, Suzuki warns us against a blind faith in these pillars of modern society. He lays bare our comfortable assumptions before revealing the source of his hope for the future. David Suzuki offers little comfort for those who feel that the problem lies with others or that it can be solved by other people or groups. Yet while stressing the seriousness of our plight, he shows us how and where to make changes that matter for all our futures. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams.

The Sacred Balance - Rediscovering Our Place in Nature, David Suzuki with Amanda McConnell
4 David Suzuki with Amanda McConnell The Sacred Balance - Rediscovering Our Place in Nature
Allen & Unwin 227237 Australia 1997 1864484144 / 9781864484144 Softcover Near Fine Condition "Consume and compete!" The message of the economic treadmill is loud and constant. But in this seminal work, David Suzuki argues that the real bottom line, and society's challenge today, is not debts and deficits, but the need to live full and meaningful lives without destroying the Earth's biosphere, which supports all life. Suzuki explores the physical, social, and spiritual needs that form the basis of any society that aspires to a sustainable future and a high quality life for its citizens. Those fundamental requirements are rooted in the Earth and its life support systems. They are worthy of reverence and respect; they are sacred. 260 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Pyramids of Life - Illuminations of Nature's Fearful Symmetry, John Reader, Harvey Croze
7 John Reader, Harvey Croze Pyramids of Life - Illuminations of Nature's Fearful Symmetry
J. B. Lippincott 227774 Philadelphia, USA First Edition 0397011512 / 9780397011513 Hardcover Very Good Very Good Whatever the outward appearance, nothing in nature is entirely random. There is a natural law through which Harvey Croze and John Reader have identified pyramids of life, relationships which bind together many different species of animals and plants. These pyramids or patterns are repeated a thousand times over as basic forces which determine the order of life on earth. Using the African ecosystem as its model, Croze and Reader's book selects examples from every level of existence, and takes into account both the increasing interference of man in recent years and the emerging science of complex adaptive systems. It is a structured and fascinating exploration of the beauties and mysteries of the living world. Illustrated with more than three hundred photographs, Pyramids of Life is an indispensable guide for all those with an interest in ecology and conservation and a beautifully designed portrait of African wildlife and nature. 222 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Foreword by Niko Tinbergen. 222 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Science::Ecology; Science & Technology; Animals & Nature::Animals. ISBN: 0397011512. ISBN/EAN: 9780397011513. Inventory No: 227774. Hardcover
