John Cunningham is a husband, a father, a grandfather...and the president of the United States. As a no-nonsense politician heralding from the state of Kansas, John is seasoned in his role as leader of the free world. He's no stranger to making difficult decisions designed to protect the majority of constituents and to secure a prosperous future for generations to come.Then, the inconceivable takes place: earth begins dying. Overpopulation, pollution, and destruction of the planet's ecosystem are just a few of the factors responsible for the world's crisis. John's position of power is taken to a whole new level as he is now tasked with deliberating on measures that have the potential to change the identity of the human race. As the nation's leading scientists rush to conduct an exhaustive review of feasible options to present to the US President, John is pressured by the certainty that decisive action is imperative if there is to be any chance of saving earth.The most obvious action, a clandestine operation that would annihilate most of the human race, is immediately rejected. Too unpalatable, even for a man accustomed to making practical and unpopular decisions. He is, however, intrigued by another option. At first glance, it's unsavory...but it might just be earth's only viable option. What should be a thoughtful decision involving great deliberation is fast-tracked by the urgency of the situation: John knows he has little time to act. Even a marginal delay might prove to be too late; the world may never recover. As difficult decisions are made and alliances formed, what is first perceived to be a foolproof plan manifests into a stealth action that affects every corner of the world. Witness the deceit and betrayal, action, intrigue, and unexpected turns of events embedded in this story heralding the will to survive and the unchanging nature of mankind.

Christians seeking to "save the Earth" have to relate creation to salvation by doing justice to both themes. This study explores the ambiguous legacy of the ways in which this challenge has been approached in the reformed tradition of Swiss, Dutch, and German origins and in the reception of this tradition in South Africa. The book focuses on the diverging interpretations of the category of "re-creation" in this regard. (Series: Studies in Religion and the Environment / Studien zur Religion und Umwelt - Vol. 8)

Can we ‘save the Planet’? For a resilient, durable and sustainable future for human society, we need to repurpose, reinvent, redesign, remake and recover our human-made world so that our built environment is benignly and seamlessly biointegrated with Nature to function synergistically with it. These are the multiple tasks that humanity must carry out imminently if there is to be a future for human society and all lifeforms and their environments on the Planet. Addressing this is the most compelling question for those whose daily work impacts on Nature, such as architects, engineers, landscape architects, town planners, environmental policy makers, builders and others, but it is a question that all of humanity needs to urgently address. Presented here are two key principles as the means to carry out these tasks – ‘ecocentricity’ being guided by the science of ecology, and ‘ecomimesis’ as designing and making the built environment including all artefacts based on the emulation and replication of the ‘ecosystem’ concept. Designing with ecology is contended here as the authentic approach to green design from which the next generation of green design will emerge, going beyond current use of accreditation systems. For those who subscribe to this principle, this is articulated here, showing how it can be implemented by design. Adopting these principles is fundamental in our endeavour to save our Planet Earth, and changes profoundly and in entirety the way we design, make, manage and operate our built environment.

We have only one earth, and how we choose to live in it matters. This highly readable and challenging text sets out some important topical issues that tells us we are not making a very good job of it. From the tropical rainforests to the teeming cities of the developing world and the energy hungry nations of Europe and North America, One World for One Earth shows that many of today's environmental problems can only be understood in terms of both the physical and the social processes involved. At present we are in a vicious circle. Uneven development creates problems of affluence in some areas and problems of poverty in others In both, the environment suffers. Independent local action has a crucial part to play, but to be really effective, sustainable development needs a new context which can only be put in place by international government co-operation. This book, by going beyond the conventional accounts of environmental problems, provides a basis for action. Originally published in 1991
