Format: Paperback
Some activists tend to preach or convey a self-righteous attitude in their approach to educating the public about the environment. Some state depressing facts that can make you feel helpless. Meadows simply states her expansive knowledge of the environment, her experiences in collecting the facts, and some very passionate stories to put it into perspective. Her book is a mind-opener and motivator.

Dr. Meadows illustrates a new way of thinking--systems thinking. Something rarely taught in K-12 today along with not teaching creative thinking, abstract thinking, strategic thinking, critical thinking ... actually we teach little about how to think but more about remembering facts. Yet facts change as science, technology, the economy, the environment, and society change.

Given our rapidly changing environment, systems thinking or thinking about the systems we live in, is critical for us in becoming not only citizens of our country, but the world as well.

Format: Paperback
The late Donella Meadows was one of the greatest systemic thinkers of our times. This book is a collection of her extremely readable columns (short essays) on environmental topics. Global Citizen will not only inform you, but will also help you think about these things in a much more wholistic, interconnected, ecologically & socially complex way - and not only that, it will do it painlessly. Her generosity of spirit and sense of humor enliven even the driest of topics.
