From Association for Baha’i Studies:
UN projections show global population reaching 11 billion—and the world economy growing by 500%—by 2100. But can the planet accommodate such an expansion when our current ecological footprint already exceeds Earth’s biocapacity? Clearly, humanity has to change direction. Yet the totality of the dominant global culture programs us to maintain the status quo: perpetual material growth. Based on his book Eleven, Paul Hanley argues that solving this conundrum will require an ethical revolution that will result in the emergence of a new culture, a new agriculture, and ultimately a new human race.
Paul Hanley has published 1500 articles on the environment, sustainable development, agriculture, and other topics. He is editor and co-author of Earthcare: Ecological Agriculture in Saskatchewan and The Spirit of Agriculture, and is a recipient of the Canadian Environment Award (2006) and the Award for Excellence in Bahá’í Studies (1986).
