I recommend this read without hesitation for everyone.
Our planet is in trouble and Dr. Rao provides a way forward.
Regenerate forests, build soil, disconnect from central energy sources
Hurrah for the butterfly !!
Sailesh, whom I have known for about thirty years, has the ability to study a problem and find the substance of the issue and then propose an innovative solution. The problem we are facing is that the planet is on the verge of not being able to accommodate the destruction that humans continue to inflict upon it. The world will be a much better place due to his work.
Others have called attention to the problem for decades, but proposed partial solutions that really may not be enough to reverse the damage. Sailesh proposes three actions to take: (1) eat a vegan diet (preferably organic), (2) shop once a year (or once a quarter) except for certain items such as food and written materials, and (3) organize frequent meetings everywhere.
The book also illustrates the author's personal path and includes a dose of Eastern philosophy which makes it very interesting and new to Western audiences.
I have purchased the print edition to keep at home and the kindle edition to have in my electronic devices at all times to discuss with people. Plus this book will be the present to give during the upcoming holidays.
