Samuel Avery presents a paradigm-shifting model of perceptual consciousness and of the world – a model he calls the quantum screen.
Investigates the economic, ecological, political, and psychological issues behind the Keystone XL pipeline.
Michael Mann aims to restore sanity to a debate that rages against scientific consensus. He enlivens the gloom and doom of so many climate books—and may even convert die-hard doubters to the side of sound science.
The science is clear: By the mid-20th century, human beings must stop burning coal, oil, and natural gas. Reducing carbon emissions is not enough – they must be eliminated. Each individual “doing their part” is only a start. We heat our homes, light our rooms, power our cars, prepare our food, and produce and distribute consumer goods with the help of fossil fuels. A practical and visionary reimagining of the future is needed. Calling for a technical and spiritual ground-shift, this book proposes carbon boycotts as collective action, with groups and communities changing what products they consume and seeking new ways to work, live, and play to steer aggregate demand towards solar, wind, geothermal, and renewable energy alternatives.
