Restoring Earth, Community, And Soulby Andrea Lynn Orcutt
Restoring Earth, Community, and Soul is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary analysis of global warming. The book summarizes climate change in all its dimensions: causes, consequences, and solutions. It demonstrates that in all of these dimensions, two very different ways of thinking frame our understanding across all disciplines, including, most notably, science, economics, politics, and religion.
Andrea Orcutt illustrates how the second way of thinking, which incorporates systems theory and progressive values, can bring the possibility of real solutions to global warming when applied to these four disciplines. She makes the overwhelming complexity of the issues involved understandable through her commentary and comparison charts of these two ways of thinking in each field. Whereas most research focuses on one narrow topic, making knowledge highly fragmented and compartmentalized, this book provides a coherent description of the whole, so that we can know where we are and where we need to go.
Orcutt incorporates two decades of study along with the expertise and wisdom of recognized leaders in these disciplines, to map a way to create a shared moral vision for a sustainable future: a new progressive vision grounded in the needs of our planet Earth. Restoring Earth, Community, and Soul should become a major reference for people concerned with saving Earth.
