This Is Hope: Green Vegans and the New Human Ecology: How We Find Our Way to a Humane and Environmentally Sane Futureby Will Anderson
This is Hope compares the outcomes of two human ecologies; one is tragic, the other is full of promise. As Will explains in his Introduction, ‘Our human ecology is the expression of everything we do and is represented by every interaction we have on earth…it consists of the multitude of relationships we have with other people, other species, and our physical environment’. He describes our current human ecology in depth to illustrate how we are living inappropriately, cruelly, and unsustainably. This is obsolete and has been for a long time; it is the cause of our overpopulation, our overconsumption of resources, the poverty of ecosystems and people, and our disregard for the rights of individuals from other species. This is Hope proposes a new human ecology to replace it.

I find the information quite detailed yet easy to grasp. This book is so necessary at this time when many environmentalists think the 'humane meat' and 'locavore' movements are serving their beliefs. The author clearly shows why we should be green vegans working to build true sustainability. He knows this approach brings hope to our seriously troubled world.
like others are saying, " this is a must read". It is not a feel good read but it is what we need to be reading and learning about if we want to save our planet and along the way the human and non human beings that we share it with. this book should be added to all college curriculum. We have to start being real about the situation we have put our selves in. We have do this by choice ...we can make the choice to make a better world . H. Garcia
