Product description


"I see this book as in a class by itself. It comes at a time when the issues it addresses have moved to the center of national and global agenda. The kinds of fundamental changes in understanding and decision making that will follow from this will literally set the direction for the human future. I will feel much more optimistic about our future prospects if people everywhere are guided by the insightful vision and practical wisdom of this remarkable book. - Maurice Strong, Secretary General, United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (Rio Earth Summit) Smelling Land's anecdotal style coupled with uncompromising science will appeal to scientist or engineering specialists, yet it is easily accessible to general readers. This is a book that will both delight and surprise. But be warned - it will change your view of the future of planet earth. - Dr. Philip Cockshutt, Director, Energy Research National Research Council of Canada (1976-1986); Executive Director, Energy Council of Canada (1991-1997)"
