Human Nature: A Blueprint for Managing the Earth - By People, For People

by James Trefil
£8.99   paperback  Owl Books (2005)

Human Nature: A Blueprint for Managing the Earth - By People, For People by James Trefil Prize-winning physicist and bestselling auhtor James Trefil has long been the public's guide to a better understanding of the world. Now, in this provocative and engaging book, he looks squarely at our environmental future, and finds - contrary to popular wisdom - reason to celebrate.
 
For too long, Trefil argues, humans have treated nature as something separate from themselves - pristine wilderness to be saved or material resources to be exploited, What we need instead is a scientific approach to the environment. In Human Nature, he explains the benefits of genetically modified species, uncovers vital facts about drought and global warming, and contends that putting humans first is the best path ahead. By taking advantage of momentous advances in the sciences, he shows we can fruitfully manage the planet and face our environmental legacy with optimism rather than alarm.
