Redesigning the Planet: Local Systems: Using Ecological Design to Reshape Civilizations
Alan Wittbecker, et al., author
Do we have the scientific, engineering or artistic abilities to redesign the planet? We humans now influence every natural system, taking what we need from some ecosystems, enhancing a few, misusing others, and interfering with the rest. We need global ecological designs to restore the balance between human needs and natural processes. The planet is self-making and self-designing, but our impacts need to be redesigned ecologically in a synthetic way. This book is a start.
