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.

The Green Baron: A Business Parable on Ecolution

The Green Baron: A Business Parable on EcolutionRichard R. Young
Baron, the CEO of a manufacturing firm, never thought of himself as an environmentalist, but rather a captain of industry. This story is a parable of how a business leader transforms his thinking about the natural environment, works to radically change the thinking of everyone in his organization, and increases profitability in the process.

A couple of events that hit close to home are the catalysts that cause Baron to look at his own actions through a different lens. It is his through this new lens that his disappointment at why things are no longer the way that he remembered them grows; coupled with his chagrin over the pervasive belief of his management team that short-term gains trump long-term benefits.

He asks Why can't others see what I'm seeing? Soon the reader joins Baron on a journey through the organization, meeting key managers, hearing how they conduct their areas of the business; ultimately witnessing their paradigm shifts that occur as a result of the green journey.

Baron, the CEO (aka The Green Baron), is a visionary in many ways but perhaps most compelling is how his story will inspire readers to start their own ecolution.

Unbowed: A Memior

Unbowed: A MemiorMaathai, a 2004 Nobel Peace Prize laureate, presents a matter-of-fact account of her rather exceptional life in Kenya. Born in 1940, Matthai attended primary school at a time when Kenyan girls were not educated; went on to earn a Ph.D. and became head of the Department of Veterinary Anatomy at the University of Nairobi before founding Kenya's Green Belt Movement in 1977, which mobilized thousands of women to plant trees in an effort to restore the country's indigenous forests. Because Kenya's environmental degradation was largely due to the policies of a corrupt government, she then made the Green Belt Movement part of a broader campaign for democracy. Maathai endured personal attacks by the ruling powers-President Moi denounced her as a wayward woman-and engaged in political activities that landed her in jail several times. When a new government came into power in 2002, she was elected to Parliament and appointed assistant minister in the Ministry for Environment and Natural Resources. Despite workmanlike prose, this memoir (after The Green Belt Movement) documents the remarkable achievements of an influential environmentalist and activist.
