When two worlds collide: society and ecology
In this book modern society is on a collision course with the natural order. Can ecological catastrophe and the demise of the human species be avoided? There is still time, but only if we transform human relationship with nature by changing the pillars of western thought. WHEN TWO WORLDS COLLIDE shows how this can be achieved. It provides the ethical, political and legal framework for a sustainable society.
