Rising Tides: A History of the Environmental Revolution and Visions for an Ecological Age
Even as politicians continue to dismiss the notion of global warming, climatic change is turning millions into refugees. In Rising Tides, Rory Spowers challenges the basic assumptions of our Western worldview, exposing the fundamental flaws in a system that believes in unlimited economic growth within a finite world; a system that confuses financial worth with the real wealth of the natural systems upon which we all depend. Rising Tides is at once a concise and well-written history of the environmental movement, an expose of current practices, and a manifesto for positive change. It is packed full of details on who is doing what to damage our environment and health and, also, how they are being opposed and by whom. The book contains an invaluable "Environmental Directory" with details of environmental groups, activist networks, and pressure organizations involved in land reform, alternative technology, and organic-food research. The rift is growing between a powerful elite pushing their policies of globalization and a worldwide network disillusioned with notions of growth, wealth, and progress. Rising Tides suggests ways we can all plug into this network, rescue our economic system from manipulation by the corporate elite, and help to create the sort of world we want to live in. ..". a lucid, far-ranging and damning indictment of the carnage that the culture of consumerism has wreaked on the planet." -- Mick Brown, author of The Spiritual Tourist "It is astonishing what Spowers achieves in his allotted space.... Rising Tides is not only exemplary, but invaluable." -- John Burnside, The Scotsman

Review: Rising TidesUser Review - Sam - Goodreads
Well written and well researched, this book is informative, helpful and slightly frightening given the amount of evidence presented and the apparant lack of political will let alone action to tackle the many environmental issues we have today Read full review
