Recently, I've been asking myself again what is the best way to respond to the environmental changes we are experiencing. I happened to come across a new book the other day by Mary Pipher titled: The Green Boat: Reviving Ourselves in Our Capsized Culture.
A few comments from the book jacket:
"With stories of local, mature activism, the Green Boat takes you through disturbing feelings about the future to a sense of hope. It's the book I've been waiting for, intelligently addressing the emotional issues involved without the guilt or blame." --Thomas Moore, author Care of the Soul
Mary Pipher has been our wise and steadfast guide through the worlds of adolescence, aging, and how families can teach humane values in a culture where everything is for sale. Now she's tackling the hardest question--how we can get past denial to reverse the human-caused climate change that jeopardizes the habitability of the world. As we'd expect, she does it thoughtfully, passionately and ultimately with hope."
--Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
