5.0 out of 5 stars Just read it, 27 April 2010
This review is from: The Vanishing Face of Gaia: A Final Warning (Paperback)
Even though Siobhan Walls set out my feelings so well, I feel bound to add my piece.

Whether you believe everything this man says, there is an underlying commonsense to his views that, despite how unnerving, strike a chord in the way I have watched "humanity" and our values develop in only 50 ish years. We are wasteful and inconsiderate of the wider and longer term effects of what we do but, as can be seen by the politicians jumping on the Green bandwagon and the image of the wind turbine being devalued, we don't have the balls to stand up and say change happens now, suspend democracy and all the "civilising rules" this stuff is too important to discuss anymore, just do it.

I read the first 3-4 pages of chapter 9 "to the next world" a couple of times as they resonated with something deep down that I have always known about us. We, as a whole, are not designed to stop what we are doing, but perhaps in a few there are "bee" genes that favour huanity rather than the human (me)....there must be.

I gently let my doctor, scientificly minded 25 year old step-daughter into some of this stuff last night, but all her science & thirst for knowledge went out the window as she said, "so there's no hope for me then" before moving the subject on. Unfortunately it will take a devestating event to open people's eyes to the possibility that JL is right, let's hope it's 200 - 300 years rather than 100.
