Ecological Intelligence: How Knowing the Hidden Impacts of What We Buy Can Change Everything

Ecological Intelligence: How Knowing the Hidden Impacts of What We Buy Can Change EverythingDaniel Goleman
Goleman, best-selling author brings his invaluable behavioral insights to our most urgent dilemma: how to halt environmental catastrophe. What√?¬?s required, Goleman believes, is ecological intelligence, which he defines as understanding the √?¬?hidden web of connections between human activity and nature√?¬?s systems, and the subtle complexities of their intersections.√?¬?

More concretely, Goleman encourages readers to learn about the many invisible threats to our health and the health of the environment caused by product manufacturing. Wisely focusing on the one element we can control, what we purchase, Goleman calls for higher √?¬?green√?¬? standards and √?¬?radical transparency√?¬? regarding how products are made.

An enlightening foray into industrial ecology reveals how new forms of analysis determine precisely how the manufacture of such disparate items as toys, shampoo, and paper contributes to natural resource depletion, chemical pollution, and global warming.

The Green Book: The Everyday Guide to Saving the Planet One Simple Step at a Time

The Green Book: The Everyday Guide to Saving the Planet One Simple Step at a Time Elizabeth Rogers
Environmental matters get the star treatment in The Green Book. Rogers and Kostigen address the fact that Americans endanger the balance of the ecosystem by the amount of waste we produce, the amount of water we use, and the amount of energy we consume, and celebrities, including Robert Redford, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Aniston, Faith Hill, and Dale Earnhardt Jr., contribute observations and suggestions for living green. In the hope that the glamour of the A-list will make discussion of environmental challenges more palpable, Rogers and Kostigen establish 12 aspects of our habitat, such as home, work, and school, and suggest better lifestyle choices in each arena. Small adjustments in the way we consume and dispose of resources add up to significant and positive environmental effects. Illustrating the results of green actions with descriptive rather than numerical analyses, Rogers and Kostigen write, for example, that if everyone in the U.S. used one less paper napkin per day, in a year's time we would have saved one billion pounds of landfill waste. An outstanding resource, The Green Book offers hope and practical suggestions.

Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature

Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by NatureJanine M. Benyus
Innovations, whether in farming, composite science, or computing, are a product of human creativity. Science writer Benyus (Beastly Behaviors, LJ 9/1/92) uses these subjects and others to demonstrate how nature's solutions to situations have been the creative jumping-off points for individuals seeking solutions, developing, or simply revitalizing processes or products. The first seven chapters are a prelude to the final chapter, which tackles industrial ecology. Here, Benyus proposes ten lessons that an ecologically astute company, culture, or economy could practice to promote a healthier existence for us all. There is no grandstanding, just readable language and a simple awe at human creativity and the uses to which it can be put.
