    Repkin turns the table on the gloom and doom approach to fighting climate change in his witty man to hu-man "Survival Guide". This is actually a charmingly narrated collection of notes gathered from years of personal and professional research on how to create an ecologically sound society - one in which we can not only survive, but thrive - not as a doomed parasites of a failing host but in harmony with our environment. Variously called environmentalism, energy conservation, sustainability, fighting global warming, green building or many other names over the years, Repkin's approach to human sustainability is called SWEN - based on the synthesis of our most basic needs into four groups - Shelter, Water, Energy and Nutrients. He examines the complex processes that support these needs in a user-friendly sort of simple arithmetic, explaining how our current processes and behavior threaten our ability to meet them (and thus threaten our very survival), and what new processes and... More > behaviors can instead instead insure our ability to live happily ever after. Two thumbs up for this down-to-earth look at the global problem and the global solution at the human scale.< Less
