Shattered Earth

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

Author Dr. Ian Prattis opens Shattered Earth in the not too distant future with a futuristic analysis of Climate Change and "the inevitable fate provided by the suicide pact engineered by corrupt corporations for most of humanity."

From there, the award-winning writer examines destructive environmental trends and practices and explores ways to protect and preserve planet Earth.

Dr. Prattis employs a skillful blending of fiction, non-fiction and biographical narratives to effectively convey his message in a thought-provoking, reader-engaging manner.

Shattered Earth provides both a big-picture look at our planet's environment in crisis along with a more individualistic-personal perspective, evident in his own experiences shared throughout this book.

This is also particularly evident in my own favorite section of Shattered Earth The enthralling Part Three - Hello Darkness, a superbly written collection of fictional short stories, exploring everything from a broken lover's loss of his self-created nurturing relationship-environment and subsequent encounter with a violent ocean environment; to a loner's strong desire to save his natural environment from being destroyed by big developer bulldozers; to an act of arson; to an old man braving an incredibly harsh environment to save the life of a child - small-picture stories of individuals engaged in environmental interaction.

Shattered Earth is a joy to read with an underlying message that we need to treat ourselves, our neighbours and our planet with much more care and concern - if you weren't an environmentalist on starting this book, you will be by the time you finish reading it.
