In exploring such fundamental questions, involving divergent views on Aboriginal land rights, environmental issues and, in particular, the future of Australian forests, Patricia and Ian Crawford argue that differing attitudes to the land underlie many of the current divisions between Aboriginal and European, city and country. This book focuses on the area surrounding Northcliffe, a small Western Australian country town deep in the cool, rainy karri country and coastal plains of the lower South West. But Northcliffe is presented as a microcosm of Australian society, so this is essentially an Australian story, one in which the authors seek to understand the land, the conflicting views over its use, and the way people have sought to shape it to their own purposes, whether hunting and gathering, droving, dairy farming, forestry or conservation. This book has grown out of the author's close personal involvement with the region and its people, and their concern for the preservation of one of the most botanically diverse areas in Australia.

In March 2005, the United Nations released its Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. Among the findings: 2/3 of the worlds ecosystems are seriously degraded; 90 percent of the worlds fish stocks are depleted; and climate change is not just something that might happen, it is already upon us. Many people, including many Christians, will hear this and delude themselves into thinking that technology can and will save the day. A wiser and more helpful response, especially for Christans, is to find a way to step back into the flow of nature from which we have extricated ourselves. In Darwin, Divinity, and the Dance of the Cosmos, Bruce Sanguin shows us the way. Sanguin draws on the latest scientific understandings of the nature of the universe and weaves them together with biblical meta-narratives and frequently overlooked strands of the Judeo-Christian tradition to create an ecological and truly evolutionary Christian theology a feat few theologians have even attempted.

Life-giving, the essential resource for survival of Earth as a Living Planet yet running down, degrading, under our selfish human stewardship ... In Australia, the driest vegetated continent, water is the most precious resource and how we manage it will determine the future prospects of the nation. RUNNING DOWN Water in a Changing Land gives a deep-time perspective to the story of the co-evolution of water resources, the environment and the animal and plant life it supports. Unless the past history of the continent and the evolution of its hydrology are understood and taken into account there is no hope of curing today's problems and achieving a situation which approaches sustainability of Australia's precious water resources.

The Eternal Frontier: An Ecological History of North America and Its Peoples
Flannery, Tim,
ISBN: 9780141026930
Penguin, London, 2007. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. New Book/. First Edition. First impression. Size: 12mo. 404 pages. All my books are IN STOCK and shipped from our Australian address.. In The Eternal Frontier Tim Flannery leads the reader on a 65 million-year quest to understand North America. From the asteroid impact that wiped out the dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous Period to the ecological havoc now being wrought upon the continent by Homo sapiens, Flannery explores America's history with keen insight and an extraordinary breadth of knowledge that encompasses the fields of palaeontology, geology, geography, ecology, anthropology and history. Along the way we learn about the extreme climatic changes that have affected the land over the last 65 million years and the adaptive responses of America's vegetation and wildlife. Ultimately, human beings had to face the environmental vicissitudes of the continent, and Flannery's exploration of the ways in which we have coped makes for fascinating, if sometimes depressing, reading. The deep history of America is particularly interesting from an ecological point of view because the region seems always to have acted as a haven for migrants--human or otherwise. As such many parallels can be drawn between the continent's distant past and its recent history of human occupation. Here Flannery is very good, sensibly exploring the links between ancient and modern America without ever overplaying his hand. Although specialists will gasp at the way Flannery flings himself across subject matter that would fill the best part of a public library, I suspect most of them will applaud his audacity and praise the final result.

This redesigned edition is updated with sidebars about the state of the ocean as we head into the new century. Looking at marine resources, global use of the oceans, coasts, and the costs of pollution, Marx draws on his knowledge of nature, history, science and law to leave the reader with an ultimately hopeful prescription, for the future.

It's time to stop just worrying about climate change, says Paul Gilding. We need instead to brace for impact because global crisis is no longer avoidable. This Great Disruption started in 2008, with spiking food and oil prices and dramatic ecological changes, such as the melting ice caps. It is not simply about fossil fuels and carbon footprints. We have come to the end of Economic Growth, Version 1.0, a world economy based on consumption and waste, where we lived beyond the means of our planet's ecosystems and resources. "One of those who has been warning me of [a coming crisis] for a long time is Paul Gilding, the Australian environmental business expert. He has a name for this moment-when both Mother Nature and Father Greed have hit the wall at once-'The Great Disruption.' "-Thomas Friedman in the New York Times Quantity Available: 1.

All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. "Consume and compete!" The message of the economic treadmill is loud and constant. But in this seminal work, David Suzuki argues that the real bottom line, and society's challenge today, is not debts and deficits, but the need to live full and meaningful lives without destroying the Earth's biosphere, which supports all life. Suzuki explores the physical, social, and spiritual needs that form the basis of any society that aspires to a sustainable future and a high quality life for its citizens. Those fundamental requirements are rooted in the Earth and its life support systems. They are worthy of reverence and respect; they are sacred. Quantity Available: 1.

The Wind Farm Scam: An Ecologist's Evaluation
Etherington, John,

All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. This book is available and will be shipped from our Australian address within two business days. The spectre of global warming and the political panic surrounding it has triggered a goldrush for renewable energy sources without an open discussion of the merits and drawbacks of each. In The Wind Farm Scam Dr Etherington argues that in the case of wind power the latter far outweigh the former. Wind turbines cannot generate enough energy to reduce global CO2 levels to a meaningful degree; what s more wind power is by nature intermittent and cannot generate a steady output, necessitating back-up coal and gas power plants that significantly negate the saving of greenhouse gas emissions. In addition to the inefficacy of wind power there are ecological drawbacks, including damage to habitats, wildlife and the far-from-insignificant aesthetic drawback of the assault upon natural beauty and the pristine landscape, which wind turbines entail. Dr Etherington argues that wind power has been, and is being, excessively financed at the cost of consumers who have not been consulted, nor informed that this effective subsidy is being paid from their bills to support an industry that cannot be cost efficient or, ultimately, favour the cause it purports to support.

The autobiography of Kenya's wildlife saviour. Richard Leakey spent years trying to save Africa's animals. Now he's trying to save a nation. Leakey began his career following in the footsteps of his famous parents, Mary and Louis, becoming a renowned paleoanthropologist and head of Kenya's National Museums. In 1989, Kenyan president Daniel arap Moi put Leakey in charge of wildlife management. Ivory poachers were killing hundreds of elephants annually and the organisation was close to collapse. Leakey's clashes with poachers and the dictator Moi will provide a dramatic focus for the book. He will also detail the challenge he faced when he lost both his legs in a suspicious plane crash that may have been caused by sabotage. He has had over 13 operations to allow him to walk again.
