RE-INHERITING THE EARTH
Awakening to sustainable solutions and greater truths
by Dr. Brian O'Leary
This breakthrough book by a noted visionary scientist-author reveals the corruptions of and solutions for a global culture deeply troubled by pollution, greed and suppression. Many approaches are examined: scientific, ecological, philosophical, political, social, spiritual and personal. Included are the latest developments in new energy, oil politics, what underlies the California and global energy crunch, and what choices we have for solving the crisis. Much more, this book is a blueprint for what we must do. I Re-Inheriting the Earth is a call to action for general readers worldwide. It is for concerned global citizens open to solutions and wary of the collusion between large industries and Western governments. In America, the readership would include most Democrats, disillusioned Republicans, and those who didn't vote at all in 2000 (that's most of us). It includes those fed up with the conventional wisdom of the media, universities and corporations.
This book provides answers we will need to implement in the near future. Included are a wide variety of clean, renewable and cost effective energy options, and ways of reversing our abusive global industrial, forestry, agricultural and water use practices, through a mix of traditional and innovative approaches. In the second part, we address the most challenging problem of all: first understanding the nature of our tyranny, and second, looking at ways in which we can change socially and personally to meet the challenge. Dr. O'Leary shares his regret that his native America leads the way in global pollution, but he also points out that the U.S. is a land of innovation and answers.
Towards the end of the book, O'Leary suggests "we are in a global spiritual crisis which demands that we remove our veils of denial and enter a new science of consciousness, exploring our potential to heal, our eternal nature, and our membership in a cosmic community of beings." We must not only create an ecologically sustainable future, he says, but we need to lift ourselves out of poverty, war, meaningless work and the ignorance of new knowledge. He concludes that we need to form a global green democracy which would oversee our sustainable, peaceful and mind-expanding futures.
