Peter McCoy’s Radical Mycology really ought to be on the bookshelves of everyone from fermented foodies to foragers, from ecologists to chemists, to permaculturists and orchardists and environmental engineers and doctors.
It’s a shame Wendell Berry’s new book of essays, Our Only World, has received scant recognition from reviewers. Not that the media have failed to acknowledge the work, just that they have all printed the same review by Kevin Begos of the Associated Press—a good review, but sadly singular. Spiritual kin as well as an associate […]
Originally published on EV Obsession. Some good people at Urban Foresight, the International Energy Agency, the Electric Vehicles Initiative, and Clean Energy Ministerial have put together an “EV City Casebook” that I highly recommend checking out (it’s free). The focus of the casebook is a summary of “50 big ideas shaping the future of electric mobility.” We’ll be […]
I just ran across this one on Facebook and thought it deserved a share: “At one time in the world, there were woods that no one owned,” was apparently written by Cormac McCarthy in Child of God.
Part ‘history of’, part ‘how to’, and a good portion hype, Super Cells ~ Building With Biology, by Nina Tandon and Mitchell Joachim, is a fascinating, inspiring, and not-infrequently self-promoting/congratulating celebration of the “collision of Biology, Design and Digital Fabrication.” The book heralds a new movement referred to as bio-design (or biodesign) in which diverse designers appropriate the […]

In 2009, defense contractors at Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency – or, DARPA, for short – publicly revealed that they’d successfully created cyborg insects capable of carrying miniaturized surveillance equipment deep into enemy territory.

Part 1, Chapter 4 “See you tomorrow,” said Pickle, mocking Ramses’s deep baritone. “Who does he think he is? Telling me to ‘be cool’ and calling me ‘bro’? It’s maddening!” “O. M. G. Shut. Up,” said Kelsi, […]

The story of what’s happening to the world’s bee populations is one that will seriously impact every living person on Earth. Sometimes, though, the best way to tell one story is with another story, and that’s one of the things this book, Pickle Panda Finds Love in the Time of Robot Bees, happens to be […]
Did you know that McKinsey & Co. has estimated that the world could save $2.9 trillion annually just by eliminating wasted energy? The following video explains how… and so much more!
The Inquisition of Climate Science by James Lawrence Powell is an essential literary resource for understanding how modern climate science is conducted, and equally, for understanding how climate change denialism has evolved and continues to undermine the public interest, to its great peril. Powell’s title smartly preempts the spurious notion of a “fair and balanced” […]
Ecoliterate: How Educators Are Cultivating Emotional, Social, and Ecological Intelligence is a practically focused book written by Daniel Goleman, Lisa Bennett, and Zenobia Barlow. The book is not only for educators and students, but also for parents and grandparents. It is a great source of information and real examples that anyone can use to help […]
“Horses Don’t See Colors?” His face screwed up with question. A few days ago a student of mine found my teacher plans to use the Pacha’s Pajamas soundtrack for our after-school Performing Arts program. He continued reading, “Butterfly Life, Nature Superhero, act out the story!” What did this mean? His enthusiasm inspired him to […]
“A great book for anyone who’s curious about veganism. It shows that not all vegans are weirdos like me.” ~Moby Main Street Vegan, written by Victoria Moran (with the great assistance of her daughter), is a book dedicated to vegans and those who are on their way to becoming vegan.

He also has a new book out called The Measure of a Nation: How to Regain America’s Competitive Edge and Boost Our Global Standing, which is sure to provoke […]
How often do you see positive environmental messages infiltrating (or occupying) the television set or global media, especially in programming for children? Children are on screens a startling 7-13 hours per day, and there is a dangerous lack of environmental (or even culturally appropriate) content for these young minds. In a recent study by […]
Dr. Michael Mann is one of the top climate scientists in the world. As such, Dr. Mann is also a top target of attack for global warming deniers threatened by the reality of global warming and climate change or fooled by industries and politicians trying to confuse the public on this matter. Chris Mooney, […]
Rising from the depths of the North Pacific lies a fabled island, now submerged just 15 feet below the surface of the ocean. Rumors and warnings about Cortes Bank abound, but among big wave surfers, this legendary rock is famous for one simple (and massive) reason: this is the home of the biggest rideable wave […]
When I stand next to The Times Atlas of the World which has recently garnered so much controversy, sitting in its lovely hardcover slipcase to protect the lovely hardcover beauty that is the atlas itself, it comes up to just below my knee. It’s really big. It deserves to be though, because inside is a series of maps, pages of information and a very comprehensive Index of places.
Here’s my review of The Times Atlas of the World.
I recently ran across a cool children’s book on environmental issues and action, The Adventures of George Global, via a friend on Facebook. I’m a sucker for these — love them. I know that books like this one and information I received as a kid on environmental topics were a big part of what made me such a green freak as an adult. Additionally, such books are fun!
Who or what is George Global?
