A timely book for those who care about the environment,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: What Has Nature Ever Done for Us?: How Money Really Does Grow On Trees (Paperback)
Everything we do and have is based on Nature - our lives, our existence and our economies. The environmental movement has evolved beyond simply protesting about the degradation of the natural environment. Now people like Tony Juniper are showing how utterly dependent we are on finely balanced natural systems and how removing parts of the whole can have disastrous consequences. Taking the Monty Python joke - What Have the Romans Ever Done for Us? - and replacing it with What has Nature Ever Done for Us?, Tony Juniper tells compelling stories about how the environment supports economic and social life without many of us realising it. The book is entertaining, informative and easy to read, with a wealth of facts to counter the naysayers who are content to see Nature continue to be ravaged and exploited for short-term gain. This is a wake-up call for us all, and a rollicking good read.
