Une idéologie toxique gouverne le monde, celle de la compétition et de l'individualisme. Pour combattre cette vision du monde néfaste, incarnée par le système économique et politique néolibéral, il est urgent de la remplacer par un nouveau récit qui engage les gens à s'inscrire dans une action politique et éclaire le chemin vers une société meilleure. George Monbiot nous montre comment nous pouvons nous appuyer sur les qualités propres à notre espèce pour imaginer et mettre en place de nouvelles politiques, qu'il qualifie de politiques de l'appartenance et faire de nous les héros d'un monde plus juste.
In these galvanising speeches and essays, he calls on humanity to stop averting its gaze from the destruction of the living planet, and wake up to the greatest predicament we have ever faced.>
Farming is the world''s greatest cause of environmental destruction - and the one we are least prepared to talk about. We criticise urban sprawl, but farming sprawls across thirty times as much land. We have ploughed, fenced and grazed great tracts of the planet, felling forests, killing wildlife, and poisoning rivers and oceans to feed ourselves. Yet millions still go hungry. br>br>Now the food system itself is beginning to falter. But, as George Monbiot shows us in this brilliant, bracingly original new book, there is another way.br>br>Regenesis is a breathtaking vision of a new future for food and for humanity. Drawing on astonishing advances in soil ecology, Monbiot reveals how new discoveries about the world beneath our feet could allow us to grow more food with less farming, and transform our relationship with the living planet. He meets the people who are unlocking these methods, from the fruit and vegetable grower who is revolutionising our understanding of fertility; through breeders of perennial grains, liberating the land from ploughs and poisons; to the scientists pioneering new ways to grow protein and fat. Together, they show how the tiniest life forms could help us resolve the biggest of our dilemmas: how to feed the world without devouring the planet. br>br>Here, for the first time, is a thrilling vision of abundant, cheap and healthy food, which could trigger a shift as profound as the invention of agriculture. Here is a new cuisine that would let us make peace with the planet, restore its living systems, and replace the age of extinction with an age of regenesis.>
The New Politics to Stop the Planet Burning. We all know that climate change is the greatest problem facing our world - it's being rammed home by new evidence every day. But does that mean the problem is now too big to deal with? Or can we solve it? In 'Heat', George Monbiot, one of the world's leading environmental activists proves, with passion and rigorous analysis, that there is a way. Radical, pragmatic and totally surprising, this book reveals how we can reconcile our demands for comfort, prosperity and peace with the increasingly pressing need to prevent us destroying out future.
In this text, George Monbiot sets out to offer a set of proposals - political, democratic, economic and environmental - that might effect the cultural change that many in the West (not to mention those on the outside of the West looking in) now want but scarcely know how to make happen.
Features essays on money, religion, war, power, culture and nature. This book explains why we are heading into an uncertain future in which peace and sound politics are paramount to our survival.
Started to worry about just how hot our world is going to get, and whether you can do anything about it? As the effect of climate change grows by the day, so does the amount of hot air and bluster spouted by politicians and businessmen on what we should do about it. Using investigative journalism, this work presents facts and inspiring ideas.
