Description

Flipping the script on climate change, Eisenstein makes a case for a wholesale reimagining of the framing, tactics, and goals we employ in our journey to heal from ecological destruction

With research and insight, Charles Eisenstein details how the quantification of the natural world leads to a lack of integration and our “fight” mentality. With an entire chapter unpacking the climate change denier’s point of view, he advocates for expanding our exclusive focus on carbon emissions to see the broader picture beyond our short-sighted and incomplete approach. The rivers, forests, and creatures of the natural and material world are sacred and valuable in their own right, not simply for carbon credits or preventing the extinction of one species versus another. After all, when you ask someone why they first became an environmentalist, they’re likely to point to the river they played in, the ocean they visited, the wild animals they observed, or the trees they climbed when they were a kid. This refocusing away from impending catastrophe and our inevitable doom cultivates meaningful emotional and psychological connections and provides real, actionable steps to caring for the Earth. Freeing ourselves from a war mentality and seeing the bigger picture of how everything from prison reform to saving the whales can contribute to our planetary ecological health, we resist reflexive postures of solution and blame and reach toward the deep place where commitment lives.

Commentaires

“What a blast of sanity! Eisenstein's corrective is a bracing piece of work, dazzlingly thought through and eloquent in its articulation. He writes from within an uncannily woke worldview, enacting a full-bodied way of thinking that discerns and feels into the complex entanglement of our lives with every facet of this breathing biosphere. This book is visionary and prophetic, achingly grounded and useful to the max.” (David Abram, cultural ecologist, geophilosopher, and author of Becoming Animal and The Spell of the Sensuous)

“There is nothing ‘safe’ in these writings; almost every chapter courts controversy. We as readers are the beneficiaries of this bravery. This is a message that must be heard loud and clear as we chart a path toward social and ecological renewal.” (Helena Norberg-Hodge, author and filmmaker of Ancient Futures and The Economics of Happiness)
 

“This is a groundbreaking book. Eisenstein makes an inspiring, positive, and convincing case for a full and proper understanding of the present human predicament - a radical shift from a utilitarian worldview to an integral world view rooted in a sense of the sacred which recognizes the intrinsic value of nature and life.” (Satish Kumar, founder of Schumacher College and editor emeritus of Resurgence & Ecologist)

Not just a book, but a way of life

If we, as a global society, could only read two books for the duration of our lives they should be: The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible AND Climate A New Story - both by Charles Eisenstein. These two brilliant works of art beautifully articulate the change that is needed as well as the change that IS happening. The change starts with us, with each of our unique expressions of life being embraced and cultivated through love. You are Loved. You ARE Love.

A paradigm pusher of a climate story

Charles Eisenstein presents a compelling argument for a shift in the whole foundation of the climate discourse. In media and politics the discussion is most often framed in terms of finance and economics, a weighing of fiscal gain against climate losses, a story doomed to failure as their can be no reconciliation there. Eisenstein presents powerful examples of where change does actually occur and illustrates how it comes out of individual or collective connection to place, that we react when we see the loss of habitats we have come to love and not at statistics over global temperature changes or indeed the paralysingly catastrophic rhetoric of many climate campaigns. He offers pragmatic ways in which such understandings can be translated into public policy on a local/global level. This is a broad, open and encompassing treatise that will resound with people on all sides of the 'climate debate' without diminishing in any way the depth of the crisis we currently find ourselves in.
The narrater reads as though he were the author - in the best possible sense.

People need to read this

Or listen. Whichever. Timely, insightful, and in my opinion, dead on. We need to rethink our relationship to everything, or at least expand it.

One of the most important voices on climate change

I have spent years studying clinate change and sustainability and while most writing on the subject is either highly academic, fear mongering or biased denialism this author does not. Nor does this book rehash the same old carbon reduction techniques that I have heard argued a hundred times. Instead he aproaches the issue from unbiased, rational viewpoint and offers a systems based, holistic set of solutions to the problem.

Must read/listen

This is not another book of doom that treats human beings like parasites. Nor does it preach sustainable growth. It preaches something desperately missing from the debate and very obvious, even for a religious climate policy sceptic like myself. The fact that the earth and all that grows out of her, is living, sentient being, including these amazing creatures called human beings. The consequences of this realization for the way we act and the foundations of our current system are described in depth and with great clarity on all levels. It asks for radical change on the macro, but, perhaps more importantly, the micro level. The focus on the local and unique as the solution to a global systemic problem is perhaps what I love most about this book. It is more about the way we treat our backyard than about our political color (if any). Accepting this is and acting on it, is not an easy thing but it is humbling and beautiful to realize that there is hope. Not for managing disaster but for a much much more beautiful world.

This book is also a must read for spiritual seekers who experience a gap between their inner life and the so-called real world, and for confused professionals who are bugged by the gap between what we teach our children and how we do and teach business.
