Howard Odum wrote this book in the 1970's and then decided to republish in the early 2000's. His ecological studies emphasized the energy/material flows in ecosystems of all sizes, he uses electrical engineering flow diagrams to describe how nature works. I did not expect the chapter on religion but he is articulate about the limitations of our economic life and associated measurements. I gam glad I got around to reading something by the ecologist, Howard Odum, who died in 2007.
