Paul Hawken at THE
In his 2007 book Blessed Unrest the environmentalist Paul Hawken called for “an assembly of humanity that is representative but not centralized” to attack the problem of global climate change and environmental degradation and “to heal the wounds of this world.” He sees human civilization not as some aberration in the saga of the earth, but as the way the planet has evolved to protect itself. We decided to end our month-long look at environmental issues on a hopeful note by choosing the Paragraph of the Week from his book Blessed Unrest. Check it out at www.the-humble-essayist.com.
