HRH The Prince of Wales reveals how the solutions to our most pressing modern challenges, from climate change to poverty, can only be found in regaining a balance with nature.
For decades, The Prince of Wales has studied a wide array of disciplines in his quest to understand how modern industrialization has led us to a state of disharmony with the world around us and pushed us to the very brink of disaster. Now, Prince Charles shows how we can effectively combat such global crises as climate change and poverty by not only relying upon technology but also by changing the way we view the modern world.
With its holistic approach, this provocative and well-reasoned book takes the discussion of sustainability and climate change in a new direction, incorporating the traditional wisdom of our past with the modern science of our present to create a new vision for our world. Illustrated with vivid photographs and charts, this intelligent, practical, and illuminating guide is not only a call to arms in defense of our future but also a powerful weapon in the battle to save our planet.
The Prince of Wales has used his unique position to make a difference throughout the world, establishing numerous charities and public interests, and organizing The Prince's Rainforests Project to combat deforestation and global warming.
You will feel enlightened by the time you are at the end of the book.
His book clearly analyzes the root causes of our separation from a state of harmony, and predicts the consequences of this estrangement from the natural world.
The book is extremely well written, full of wisdom, well thought out, and so eye opening.
