Summary
"Planners tend to ignore ecological diversity because they don't understand it. Ecological Diversity in Sustainable Development: The Vital and Forgotten Dimension makes that clear." "Features: explains that communities must maintain the natural cycles of the surrounding landscape in ways that provide enough energy to survive; discusses how our thoughts dictate our actions and any consequences are a result of our thinking; argues that we cannot find a solution through science and technology without first raising our level of consciousness because the thinking that caused the problem cannot fix it; and suggests that we can design our futures so that culture creates its own harmony and is in balance with Nature."--Jacket
