R world A wonderful book that gives us hope that things can get better and hopefully gives courage to some of the authorities and regulators to be stricter and ffective on matters governing the Snowflakes on the Sea earth and itsco system Good presentation for a childish message This Wrathful Chaos: Five Books of Satanic Philosophy engaging andasy to read book is written as a series of short chapters and by the nd of ach one you understand what the problem is what the solutions might be and what the conseuences of inaction could look likeJonathon Porritt really knows his stuff on tech developments so this never reads like sci fi despite being set in the future he has just xtrapolated the likely outcomes of the nvironmental crises we are facing and imagined what the human response will beI recommended this to a colleague who was a bit shaky on what the key issues are in sustainability This is such a clever way of getting to grips with a whole host of issues and much interesting and Humanism: The Greek Ideal and its Survival engaging with lots of the books I readPut it this way this is the first sustainability book I vever recommended Loving this book Will be interesting to see how close to the truth it will be This book written by a highly ualified author as a diary view of the present from the future does have much to recommend it It has a basically positive outlook and covers a great many areas relating to sustainability and other nvironmental interest including social justice and interestingly in this post GFC period the international banking system It details many ways in which we can make changes to improve the future I think that this would be a very good
