Greg Easterbrook's "A Moment on the Earth" proclaims a revolution in environmental thinking. Instead of the dogged pessimism of the past, the author charts a new course towards the positive in environmental events.One of the most striking features of "A Moment on the Earth" is Easterbrook's sense that nature's perspective is the essential ingredient missing from modern environmental thought. In the first section of the book Easterbrook draws upon biology, geology, and environmental theory to show how the flow of life appears from nature's point of view.Part Two of the book analyzes, persuasive detail, every major environmental issue of our time - from energy, forests, and population, to radiation, toxic waste, and water-separating. Those environmental alarms that have been genuine from those that have been exaggerated.
