"The on-going environmental crisis that we two authors have been writing about for the past twenty years really is a terrorist war, but it's one that we're waging against ourselves," write Suzuki (host of the TV series The Nature of Things) and Dressel (Suzuki's co-author on From Naked Ape to Superspecies). Yet the authors remain hopeful: because of the farmer protecting wild flora and fauna while raising cows and lambs for slaughter, the lumber company slicing trees but conserving bear and cougar habitat, the farmer who doesn't deplete soil and water, and new technologies that will someday "reduce, control, and even eliminate almost every form of pollution and toxin...."

This book does everything well enough, and not superlatively. I appreciate it's sentiment, but find it lacking in meat and potatoes. The book seems content to pretend that we can have our cake and eat it sustainably. In his current talks, Suzuki seems not to share this view and so the book seems designed to placate people hoping that sorting paper from plastic will be enough.
