The Environment’s Last Hour? Not If We Do Something Now

Climate change. Species extinction. Disappearing ecosystems. The global environmental crisis is closing in on humanity from all directions, yet the crisis barely registers on this culture’s list of problems–perhaps many of us are too busy watching reality shows about octuplets or bachelors or underfed models. As we stand around, humanity is doomed to a collapse that may leave only a few nomads, and a toxic, barely survivable Earth in its wake.

Time to wake up, it would seem. Time to un-glue ourselves from the TV and take a step towards change. Time to check out Time’s Up! An Uncivilized Solution To A Global Crisis by Keith Farnish–your guide to understanding (and implementing) a healthier future.

ANNOUNCING THE RELEASE OF…..

TIME’S UP! An Uncivilized Solution To A Global Crisis

THE BOOK THAT COULD MAKE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HUMANITY SURVIVING, OR HUMANITY ENDING.

There is a crisis of our making unfolding as we watch, and it could spell the end of humanity as we know it. While we enjoy the material benefits of technological “progress” and economic growth, we have singularly failed to understand the terrible price of such a situation, and have become utterly incapable of doing anything about it. The small ripples that we see at the edge of the pond–slowly eating the bank away that we are standing upon–have a source, and that source is Industrial Civilization.

Here is book that will completely change how we look at ourselves and the damage we are causing; and offers a way of putting humanity back on a sustainable track–the one that we veered off not so long ago, and now feel we can never return to. Time’s Up! An Uncivilized Solution To A Global Crisis is no mainstream environmental book, it is no less than a survival guide for humanity.

The author, Keith Farnish, does not accept that there is only one way to live, nor does he accept that we are fated to destroy the life-support system that we depend upon for our survival. In Time’s Up! he takes the reader on a journey through a myriad of different scales, examining in detail the way our behaviour is causing our own demise; he examines the essence of what it means to be human, asking (and answering) the vital question: “What matters to us?”; he helps us to understand the importance of reconnecting with the real world, and then explains in terrible detail how and why industrial society has kept us in a lethal, disconnected state. Finally, he offers a set of radical, multi-level solutions to bringing us back on track, and following the path that humanity has to follow if we are to survive as a species.

Time’s Up! is not a comfortable read, but never before has a problem been in such need of uncomfortable truths.
