David Suzuki The Legacy: An Elder’s Vision for Our Sustainable Future, 2010.

Canadian environmental activist David Suzuki expands on a lecture he delivered in December of 2009 to explain how the world has come to be in the state it’s in today. The global economy and technological growth have come at a devastating cost to the planet. He argues passionately for a more holistic approach to progress.

“We needn’t be saddened with the impossible weight of managing the entire biosphere, but we must meet the challenge of living in balance with the sacred elements.”  — David Suzuki The Legacy: An Elder’s Vision for Our Sustainable Future.

Alan Weisman The World Without Us, 2008.

Alan Weisman explores what would happen to the planet if all the humans disappeared at once. He picks up just days after this hypothetical event. Immediately, there would be floods, crumbling infrastructure, and wildlife in previously man-made environments. In showing how the natural world would flourish without us, he focuses on the damage we are inflicting on the planet.
