Kirsten | 282 comments Since my wonderful co-mod posted a new book about garbage, I thought I'd post a few book ideas about sustainability to get everyone going on the theme.
Materials Matter: Toward a Sustainable Materials Policy (More of a green building book, but still good)
A Green History of the World: The Environment and the Collapse of Great Civilizations (read this book for a class, thought it was really interesting)
The New Atlas of Planet Management
The Sacred Balance (I love his work)
The Hidden Connections: A Science for Sustainable Living

And coming out in August is a book I'm looking forward to called, "Eco-Republic: What the Ancients Can Teach Us about Ethics, Virtue, and Sustainable Living" by Melissa Lane. I pre-ordered a copy, so we'll see!

Happy reading, and feel free to add any books you feel fit the bill, or even that don't quite fit, environmental science is tremendously inter-connected.

Kirsten | 282 comments Makes August seem so far away...not that I don't have other things to read.

Kirsten | 282 comments I just got The Post Carbon Reader: Managing the 21st Century's Sustainability Crises and I'm suuuuuper excited to read it. I think it may get bumped to the top of my reading list. The lady at Barnes and Noble didn't share my enthusiasm, however.
