Book Description

"Environmental collapse, I hold, is going to be the result of our present collective attitudes. Regardless of what we believe, only when humanity gets an accurate model of reality can we have a sustainable future. We Don't Get It! uses a collection of short essays that get to the heart of this major dilemma. My purpose in writing this book is to clarify some of the most compelling reasons for protecting our environment and to challenge some of our deepest assumptions about our way of life and its effect on our environment in a way that most authors on this subject have not.

The intended audience for this book is the public as well as both the politicians and the scientists responsible for environmental policy. It is a thoughtful examination of our wholesale relationship to our environment and our seeming lack of respect for its absolute primacy. Designed to be easily read piecemeal by both the professional and the public, I believe this book, by its unique and frank approach, will appeal to any one who cares about our future."

5.0 out of 5 stars A unique and much-needed perspective May 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
On some level, most of us "get" that the health of the environment is important, but few of us really "get it", really comprehend the degree of danger and the level of change needed to right our way of life. We Don't Get It pulls us in to a new way of seeing our world, freeing us from many of the cultural memes that so warp our views and our priorities. Ultimately, nature will out, and nature doesn't give a fig whether any of us survives or not, and we need to comprehend and deal with this or the human species (and many more besides) is doomed. Our everyday world removes us so effectively from this reality that even those involved in environmental work often fail to truly grasp it. Through everyday examples, Mr. Regan provides a gentle but effective slap in the face to hopefully wake us from our everyday dreamworld. Hopefully before we have little but our regrets to keep us company.
