The Comforting Whirlwindby Bill McKibben, Glenn Edward. Sadler
Pointing to the now-familiar consequences of our self-centered environmental practices--the greenhouse effect, the ozone hole, and deforestation--Bill McKibben's mix of modern science and biblical wisdom forces us to acknowledge that growth and economic progress are not only undesirable but downright deadly. If we continue to press the pace of development, we will very soon complete the 'decreation' of our planet, destroying everything on it, including ourselves.
