The Bet: Paul Ehrlich, Julian Simon, and Our Gamble over Earth’s Future Уцененный товар (№2)

The Bet: Paul Ehrlich, Julian Simon, and Our Gamble over Earth’s Future Уцененный товар (№2)

In 1980, the iconoclastic economist Julian Simon challenged celebrity biologist Paul Ehrlich to a bet. Their wager on the future prices of five metals captured the public's imagination as a test of coming prosperity or doom. Ehrlich, author of the landmark book THE POPULATION BOMB, predicted that rising populations would cause overconsumption, resource scarcity and famine - with apocalyptic consequences for humanity. Simon optimistically countered that human welfare would flourish thanks to flexible markets, technological change, and our collective ingenuity. Simon and Ehrlich's debate reflected a deepening national conflict over the future of the planet. THE BET: PAUL EHRLICH, JULIAN SIMON, AND OUR GAMBLE OVER EARTH'S FUTURE weaves the two men's lives and ideas together with the era's partisan political clashes over the environment and the role of government. In a lively narrative leading from the dawning environmentalism of the 1960s through the pivotal presidential contest between Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan and on into the 1990s, Paul Sabin shows how the fight between Ehrlich and Simon - between environmental fears and free-market confidence - helped create the gulf separating environmentalists and their critics today. Drawing insights from both sides, Sabin argues for using social values, rather than economic or biological absolutes, to guide society's crucial choices relating to climate change, the planet's health, and our own.

WTF: What's the Future and Why It's Up to Us

WTF: What's the Future and Why It's Up to Us

The past is another country, the old saying goes. The same might be said of the future. But which country? For Europeans and Americans today, the answer is Russia.Today's Russia is an oligarchy propped up by illusions and repression. But it also represents the fulfilment of tendencies already present in the West. And if Moscow's drive to dissolve Western states and values succeeds, this could become our reality too.In this visionary work of contemporary history, Timothy Snyder shows how Russia works within the West to destroy the West; by supporting the far right in Europe, invading Ukraine in 2014, and waging a cyberwar during the 2016 presidential campaign and the EU referendum. Nowhere is this more obvious than in the creation of Donald Trump, an American failure deployed as a Russian weapon.But this threat presents an opportunity to better understand the pillars of our freedoms, confront our own complacency and seek renewal. History never ends, and this new challenge forces us to face the choices that will determine the future: equality or oligarchy, individualism or totalitarianism, truth or lies.The Road to Unfreedom helps us to see our world as if for the first time. It is necessary reading for any citizen of a democracy.

Kinfolk Volume 13

Kinfolk is the place to discover new things to cook, make and do. The growing international community is generous when it comes to sharing ideas for small gatherings, ways to take good care of friends and family and living a grounded, balanced lifestyle that is about connecting and making conversation.Kinfolk Volume 13 celebrates the holes in our socks, our scorched attempts at marmalade making and all the bad haircuts we've had over the years. We're all guilty of occasionally attempting to make our lives seem a little cleaner or a bit more organised, but the reality is often quite different. There s nothing wrong with daydreaming of an idyllic life, but what if we dropped the facade for a moment and celebrated our shortcomings? These flawed details are the beautifully blemished collateral of a life lived to the fullest. So make mistakes. Make a mess. Be imperfect.

Kinfolk Volume 17

Kinfolk Volume 17

KINFOLK VOLUME 17 is The Family Issue, exploring the different meanings of the word family and the people who make us who we are. KINFOLK is the place to discover new things to cook, make and do. The growing international community is generous when it comes to sharing ideas for small gatherings, ways to take good care of friends and family and living a grounded, balanced lifestyle that is about connecting and making conversation. In KINFOLK VOLUME 17: THE FAMILY ISSUE, the contributors explore different meanings of the word 'family' and the people who make us who we are. They explore family roots in all sorts of forms, from culinary to genealogical and emotional. Stories will seek to define the people we consider our kin, whether that means blood relatives or the folks we've adopted into our lives. The contributors will also look at how personal foundations are formed and how we can be conscious of our actions and the way they may influence someone else's future. They will break new ground and create something unexpected, veering away from the usual stories on the memories of our grandmothers' kitchens and avoiding the tired cliches of stereotyping the various types of 'contemporary families'. Instead, they seek to understand what family means in the here and now, not just what it looks like. They will undoubtedly find that interpretations of family can spread much further than the branches of the family tree.

Revolution

Revolution

Russell Brand will donate 100% of his money for this book to Tre Era Cafe, a social enterprise community project on the New Era estate - whose vicotory against corporations and inefficient government exemplifies the principles in this book. We all know the system isn't working. Our governments are corrupt and the opposing parties pointlessly similar. Our culture is filled with vacuity and pap, and we are told there's nothing we can do - "it's just the way things are". You have been lied to, told there's no alternative, no choice and that you don't deserve any better. Brand destroys this illusory facade as amusingly and deftly as he annihilates Morning Joe anchors, Fox News fascists and BBC stalwarts. This book makes revolution not only possible, but inevitable and fun.

You Can't Touch My Hair

You Can't Touch My Hair

Phoebe Robinson is a stand-up comic, which means that, often, her everyday experiences become points of comedic fodder. And as a black woman in America, she asserts, sometimes you need to have a sense of humor to deal with the nonsense you are handed every day. Robinson has experienced her fair share over the years: she's been unceremoniously relegated to the role of "the minority friend," as if she is somehow the authority on all things racial; she's been questioned about her love of U2 and Billy Joel ("isn't that...white people music?"); she's been called "uppity" for having an opinion in the workplace; she's been followed around stores by security guards; and yes, people do ask her whether they can touch her hair all. the. time. Now, she's ready to take these topics to the page. As personal as it is political, You Can't Touch My Hair is an utterly modern essay collection: one that examines our cultural climate and skewers our biases, all told from Robinson's singularly witty point of view.
