Then it moves to a description of some of the damage we have done to the ecosphere --to the air, the water, the soil.

Much less clear is what we need to learn from them, and so I have chosen less to shed tears of our past mistakes than to try to understand them. Science and Survival. The Poverty of Power. The Politics of Energy. Making Peace with the Planet.
