EssaysBook - 1998
Are we going too fast to stop? Is there another way? In this new collection of essays David Suzuki points the way to a slower way of life in tune with the Earth and its riches.As we rush towards the end of the millennium, we find ourselves in a time of unprecedented change and growth -- in population, in consumerism, in pollution, in information exchange. Are these changes happening too fast? Is it too late to stop and assess? In these essays, David Suzuki takes stock and points the way to a brighter future and a world that we can proudly leave to our children and grandchildren. He looks unflinchingly at the forces that have driven us to the edge: globalization, political shortsightedness, greed, and willful blindness. And he looks at the places from which we should take strength and hope: nature, nurturing of the Earth, local initiatives, children.
