Offers practical alternatives and realistic startegies to enhance our natural resources and environment in harmony with today's modern technology. It examines the economics of green consumerism, the reality of saving the environment, how historical cultures may have influenced environmental damage, and how being ecologically correct may have a more damaging effect on our environment.
The book is thought-provoking and useful in evaluating our own values and ethics relative to ecologically sensitive issues. ("CHOICE", S.A. Carlson, Humboldt State University)
