New book

Environmental Economics

This book is a follow-up to The End of Abundance (2011), but: I wrote it from scratch (no editing/revision of the old book). It has ideas that I have not explored or explained here (this is not a tease -- it was just easier to describe them in the book). It's shorter, cheaper and snappier than my earlier book. You can buy the book in paperback ($10), Kindle ($4.99) and PDF ($5).

Sprout Lands – Book Review

Green (Living) Review

William Bryant Logan traveled from the English fens to Spain, California and Japan to rediscover and celebrate what was once a common and practical ecology – finding hope that humans may again learn what the persistence and generosity of trees can teach, and the reader can travel with him on that journey through the book. I found this book very easy to read and times it felt like reading a novel in that one did not want to put the book down.

Churchill & Orwell – Book Review

Green (Living) Review

Today probably more than ever Orwell's books “Animal Farm” and “1984” are important. This is a book for anyone interested in politics, especially how today's neo-liberalism is headed towards a totalitarian system, by increments in such a way that most people do not even realize it and call anyone pointing this out conspiracy theorists. book review Churchill Orwell politicsReview by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Churchill & Orwell – The Fight For Freedom by Thomas E.

E-Books vs. Real Books

Green (Living) Review

By Michael Smith (Veshengro) E-books vs. real books: on the sustainability scale which wins? E-book readers are, in my opinion, not sustainable. E-book readers, whether the Amazon Kindle, or whichever else, are NOT sustainable and that regardless of what industry and most green media even would want us to believe. The e-book, as a PDF document, downloaded to your computer is a different story and we will get to those at a later stage.

Environmental Economics

Here are a couple of excerpts ($ link ): The book’s introduction does a good job of describing both the historical and current issues and problems in this area of economic research. The 19 papers presented in the book are subdivided in five sections, with the first section discussing theoretical and modeling issues and the mathematical and statistical tools needed to address the many empirical problems that arise in combining SP and RP data.

Pets Aplenty – Book Review

Green (Living) Review

The author has an uncanny ability to paint human as well as animal characters in his books and this will enable anyone with a little imagination to actually visualize the people and animals he is writing about. The reader will be laughing all the way through and let me issue another serious warning; do not read this book on public transport of any kind unless you don''t mind laughing out real loud and long on a bus or train and have people question your sanity.

This overproduction is also rather frequently mentioned and exposed as a major problem for the situation of the working class in the book “The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists” and that book too should be read by all. Apart from the Bible, “The Communist Manifesto” has become the most widely read book in the world. When fascist-type regimes seize power, it is always on the list of books to burn. book review communism Marxism politics socialism

When Technology Fails – Book Review

Green (Living) Review

But unlike any other book, Stein not only shows you how to live “green” in seemingly stable times, but to live in the face of potential disasters, lasting days or years, coming in the form of social upheaval, economic meltdown, or environmental catastrophe. Well, so far for the material from the publishers and the author, now allow me to make my comments and give you my take on this book. boo book review When Technology Fails

Servatur Gaiae – Book Review

Green (Living) Review

We could, probably, have done without the repeated sex scenes in the first parts of the book but, as John and his wife were trying for a third child – which does not work out and the reader will later in the book learn why not – it may have been necessary, to some degree. The book uses the vehicle of fiction to help readers explore a host of real-world problems; namely pollution, deforestation, exhaustion of resources, over-population and species extinction.

A paper-based address book of sorts should always be in existence for if and when technology throws a fit.
