Feral : rewilding the land, the sea, and human life by George Monbiot( Book )

8 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To be an environmentalist early in the twenty-first century is always to be defending, arguing, acknowledging the hurdles we face in our efforts to protect wild places and fight climate change. But let's be honest: hedging has never inspired anyone. So what if we stopped hedging? What if we grounded our efforts to solve environmental problems in hope instead, and let nature make our case for us? That's what George Monbiot does in Feral, a lyrical, unabashedly romantic vision of how, by inviting nature back into our lives, we can simultaneously cure our "ecological boredom" and begin repairing centuries of environmental damage. Monbiot takes readers on an enchanting journey around the world to explore ecosystems that have been "rewilded": freed from human intervention and allowed--in some cases for the first time in millennia--to resume their natural ecological processes. We share his awe, and wonder, as he kayaks among dolphins and seabirds off the coast of Wales and wanders the forests of Eastern Europe, where lynx and wolf packs are reclaiming their ancient hunting grounds. Through his eyes, we see environmental success--and begin to envision a future world where humans and nature are no longer separate and antagonistic, but are together part of a single, healing world
Greedy lying bastards( Visual )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Investigates the reason behind stalled efforts to tackle climate change despite consensus in the scientific community that it is not only a reality but also a growing problem placing us on the brink of disaster. The film details the people and organizations casting doubt on climate science and claims that greenhouse gases are not affected by human behavior. From the Koch Brothers to ExxonMobil, to oil industry front groups, to prominent politicians and justices ..."--1 Earth Productions Web site, 11 September 2013
Heat : how to stop the planet burning by George Monbiot( Book )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We know that climate change is happening. We know that it could, if the worst predictions come true, destroy the conditions that make human life possible. Only one question is now worth asking: can it be stopped?" "In HEAT, George Monbiot shows that it can. By revealing how we can save the planet without losing our comfort and security, Monbiot exposes the cowardice of our politicians and sweeps away their perpetual excuse for doing nothing: that it would be too painful and expensive to sustain life on earth." "For the first time, he demonstrates that we can achieve the necessary cut - a 90 per cent reduction in carbon emissions by 2030 - without bringing civilization to an end. Combining his unique knowledge of campaigning and environmental science, he shows how we can transform our homes, our power and our transport systems. But he also shows that this can happen only with a massive programme of action, which no government has yet been prepared to take." "In every case, he supports his proposals with a rigorous investigation into what works, what doesn't, how much it costs and what the problems might be. He is not afraid to attack anyone - friend or foe - whose claims are false or whose figures have been fudged. HEAT also contains a breathtaking new exposure of the corporations trying to stop us from taking action."--BOOK JACKET
Manifesto for a new world order by George Monbiot( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and Turkish and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this text, George Monbiot sets out to offer a set of proposals - political, democratic, economic and environmental - that might effect the cultural change that many in the West (not to mention those on the outside of the West looking in) now want but scarcely know how to make happen. Originally published: London: Flamingo, 2003
The age of consent : a manifesto for a new world order by George Monbiot( Book )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What Monbiot offers in The Age of Consent is a truly global perspective, a sense of history, a defence of democracy, and an understanding of power and how it might be captured from those unfit to retain it. The ingenious solutions he suggests for some of the planet's most pressing problems mark him as perhaps the most realistic utopian of our time and a man whose passion is infectious and whose ideas, many will surely come to agree, are becoming irresistible."--Jacket
Out of the wreckage : a new politics for an age of crisis by George Monbiot( Book )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Maps a thrilling new route to a better society: the political story that will replace the failed narratives wrecking our world. Today, our lives are dominated by an ideology of extreme competition and individualism. This misrepresents human nature, destroys hope and common purpose. But we cannot replace it without a positive vision, one that re-engages people in politics and lights a path to a better world. George Monbiot explains how communities can be rebuilt, with the help of a new "politics of belonging". He shows how to rescue politics through a radical redesign of elections and political rules, coupled with novel forms of direct democracy. A new economic model will allow communities to own their crucial resources and give people control of public investment, beyond the market or the state. This vision can be realised through spectacular new models of political organising, that overcome established power through mutual aid, operating on a grand scale. Urgent, and passionate, Out of the Wreckage provides the hope and purpose required to change the world"--

The age of consent : a manifesto for a new world order by George Monbiot( Book )

26 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If Naomi Klein's "No Logo" told us what was wrong, George Monbiot promises to show us how to put it right. "Our task," he says, "is not to overthrow globalisation, but to capture it, and to use it as a vehicle for humanity's first global democratic revolution." All over our planet, the rich get richer while the poor are overtaken by debt and disaster. The world is run not by its people but by a handful of unelected or underelected executives who make the decisions on which everyone else depends: concerning war, peace, debt, development and the balance of trade. Without democracy at the global level, the rest of us are left with no means of influencing these men but to shout abuse and hurl ourselves at the lines of police defending their gatherings and decisions. Does it have to be this way?
Bring on the apocalypse : six arguments for global justice by George Monbiot( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this collection of essays on money, religion, war, power, culture and nature, the author explains why we are heading into an uncertain future in which peace and sound politics are paramount to our survival. From his attack on the countries that deny the existence of global warming to his rally against the injustices of the Iraq war, the author turns his gaze on the aspects of modernity that most endanger the prevailing world order. With characteristic precision, he offers unassailable proof that the desecration of the resources on which we all depend threatens the peace, equality - and very existence - of humanity. This book is an urgent wake-up call that we cannot afford to ignore. -- Publisher details
The lottery of birth( Visual )

"Do you shape the world or does the world shape you? Is freedom something we are born with or something we must work to attain? Offering a torrent of mind-expanding ideas and information The Lottery of Birth is going to make you think again about what it means to be free.

Whether you're into philosophy, economics or simply being a better person than you were born to be, you can't afford to miss this film. The Lottery of Birth is the first film in a groundbreaking new three-part documentary series: Creating Freedom.

Bring on the Apocalypse : essays on self-destruction by George Monbiot( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In these incendiary essays, George Monbiot tears apart the fictions of religious conservatives, the claims of those who deny global warming and the lies of the governments and newspapers that led us into war. He takes no prisoners, exposing government corruption in devastating detail while clashing with people as diverse as Bob Geldof, Ann Widdecombe and David Bellamy. But alongside his investigative journalism, Monbiot's book contains some remarkable essays about what it means to be human. Monbiot explores the politics behind Constable's The Cornfield, shows how driving cars has changed t
