Review Climate Author Charles Eisenstein

Climate Author Charles EisensteinCharles Eisenstein s book Climate A New Story is full of compassion and insight about human alienation from the natural world that has led to our current climate crisis His is fundamentally a book of philosophy that challenges readers to reevaluate many widely held cultural beliefs and assumptions that could very well end up killing us and everything on the planet Philosophy books are not easy to read Readers must be willing to read carefully and to o some serious self reflection to fully understand this book Only then can we begin to make the changes that must be madeAt root Eisenstein is asking us to recognize the Sonic Alchemy: Visionary Music Producers and Their Maverick Recordings different stories we tell ourselves and how these stories are not working The Story of Separation from the natural world is leading toisaster We focus on fear rather than on what we love He takes to task the global warming narrative that is yet another us vs them narrative He makes a strong argument that fear won t work in the end Only love works We work to save what we love and that s why protecting local ecosystems usually work much better than abstract larger scale projects He calls for a Story of InterbeingEverything is connected It makes no sense to worry only about the Mapping wild gardens: The symbolic conquest of South Africa (African literatures in English) death of kelp forests which suck up CO2 if weon t also be concerned about the threats to sea otters which keep sea urchins under control which wipe out kelp forests Instead of a love of nature and the recognition that all living things are connected he says we focus on fear of our survival He takes on at length our very Gramatica de baza a limbii romane dysfunctional economic system which measures uantity to theetriment of living things He asks us instead to measure ualityThis is not a book of only what Suggestive Inuiry into the Hermetic Mystery with a Dissertation on the More Celebrated of the Alchemical Philosophers Being an Attempt Towards the Recovery of the Ancient Experiment of Nature doesn t work Eisenstein has plenty of great examples of Interbeing a recognition of how to live within and love the natural world and how to act on that He points out the many ways in which the planet is suffering that has nothing too with the climate crisis Our overuse and misuse of plastics is one example Another is our methods of agriculture which involve College University Budgeting: College And University Budgeting deforestation monocropping pesticide use and a resulting insect holocaust He gives us ways out of this human causedisaster through regenerative agriculture methods Human well being and planetary health are inextricably connected That s why we have to stop thinking of ourselves as separate The climate crisis isn t new and there isn t a one fits all cure or a miraculous technological solution if not there wouldn t be a crisis But Eisenstein s holistic perspectives in this book serve as urgent reminders of why every facet of society has to work towards the same goal A lot of Integrating Cleveland Baseball drive has to start organically from ground up and I m appreciative of his views on the commercial aspects Firstly a warning this is going to be a long review In fact this book has taken me someone who can read two boo My partner suggested that I stop reading this book because I was bitching about reading it I feel like this treads very familiar ground for most social justice and nonwestern thought aware people especially if they pay attention to non white points of view we are con I ve been listening to Charles Eisenstein for a long time I ve read most of his books and feel pretty much the same way about this one as Io about all the others Some of it is great and some is just really terrible I honestly love about half of what he says He really The Modern Drunkard's Adventures with Alcohol does get a lot of the things that everyone else is missing Unfortunately I can t stand the other half And from my experience it s the bad half that his readers seem to be most influenced by I ve been recommending Sacred Economics to people for the last 5 or 6 years considering a lot of the ideas in there to be really important I thought that people had enough common sense to ignore theumber things in there especially since I tend
*to share it *
share it caveats about which parts of it I consider useful and which parts I consider ridiculous I also tend to recommend reading counter arguments from people like Derrick Jensen before making any big Grassroots Leviathan decisions From my experience though people thato ecide to read his stuff just come to think of themselves as spiritually enlightened and never bother looking into the alternative explanations This is making it really ifficult for me to keep recommending his booksOn the good side his ideas on regenerative agriculture ecosystem restoration the benefits of indigenous cultures and transitioning "THE GLOBAL ECONOMIC SYSTEM AWAY FROM "global economic system away from growth are all great These are really important concepts and he Facts and Features of English History, a Series of Alternating Reading and Memory Exercises doeso a good job explaining them On the bad side he gets really carried away with these naive New Age ideas about the 57 Ways to Screw Up in Grad School divine purpose of human existence and the supposed teleology of technologicalevelopment All people are good at heart the universe loves us all climate change Love in Bloom deniers have just as many reasons to believe the things they believe as weo those in positions of power sincerely believe that they re all African Native Literature: Or, Proverbs, Tales, Fables and Historical Fragments in the Kanuri or Bornu Language doing what s best for the world etcI can understand the argument that the mainstream scientific establishment has given people a lot of reasons toistrust them We were told that cannabis is The Alcohol Bible dangerous and that opioids Flipping the script on climate change Eisenstein makes a case for a wholesale reimagining of the framing tactics and goals we employ in our journey to heal from ecologicalestruction   With research and insight Charles Eisenstein Hermetic Alchemy Science and Practice The Golden Dawn Alchemy Series 2 details how the uantification of the natural world leads to a lack of integration and our “fight” mentality With an entire chapter unpacking the climate changeenier’s point of view he advocates for expanding our exclusive focus on carbon emissions. Re just safe pharmaceutical medicines They told us not to worry about nuclear power plants DDT is good for me e e etc Clearly we should be a little skeptical But people that listen to Fox News and who voted for Donald Trump are just making honest mistakes Really They couldn t possibly be any blatant with their lies They literally contradict themselves within the same sentence sometimes At some point you have to admit that there are people out there who can t be reached with rational arguments A lot of them in fact They won t be persuaded or guilted into changing their minds no matter what you say A big theme of this book is that there are other things to argue about than whether or not carbon in the atmosphere is going to kill us and that s fine There are a lot of other things killing us that are harder to IELTS Academic and General Task 2 How to Write at a Band 9 Level deny than long term global warming Is there any reason to expect the Right to be moved by these other arguments though And is Eisenstein even a good candidate to try reaching these people I mean even Left wingers with hippie leanings can get annoyed with the way he words things Frankly I can t think of anyone worse for that job than Eisenstein Therefore every word of this book spent on that subject is kind of a waste of time in my opinion And there is a lot of that in here All that said I stillo kind of like this book I wish I could just recommend certain chapters of it but even the better chapters have a lot of stupid ideas mixed in with them which makes every part of this kind of hard to take seriously It s unfortunate that he can t seem to restrain himself from trying to cram in every cute little cleverly worded idea he thinks of when he writes If he just took the best ideas from all his books and put them together without the annoying stuff he really could make something pretty great If we want a living world we have to act from the place where the world is alive Charles Eisenstein Eisenstein s greatest work to BWWM date Completely reframed my understanding of climate change So grateful for this book and Charles work writing it In my opinion if you are concerned about the converging crises of the ecology and the economy and the social and political ills that trouble the modern world Charles Eisenstein is one of the most important voices out thereIn this book heares to expand the conversation around climate change from one that is increasingly ineffective because it is based on motivating us to act by using our fear of mortality and a horrible climate Morning by Morning: How We Home-Schooled Our African-American Sons to the Ivy League damaged world to one that recognizes that climate change is part of a larger picture concerning ourisconnection from the environment and that we will best be motivated to act by appealing to our heart s love and care for the natural world There is so much I can say about this book and How Al-Anon Works for Families Friends of Alcoholics did in a series of blog posts link below but mostly I cherish it for moving me back to coming from the heart when I ponder what I cano to helpIn addition Eisenstein also covers some fascinating science that I was unaware of such as how BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *1 (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *1: Billionaires Secret Baby (BWWM Secret Baby Romance Contemporary Romance) deforestation and the water table may have much too with climate change than previously thoughtIn conclusion I can t recommend this book highly enough I wasn t going to review this book because I like Charles Eisenstein and I appreciate what he s trying to o in general with his career to integrate humans better with the natural world With a spiritual bent Eisenstein has also inspired people around the world to think creatively to open their hearts "and to make positive changes in their personal lives For that "to make positive changes in their personal lives For that should be encouraged and applaudedSo when I found his book on climate change frustrating I was just going to let it go But after reading this uote from respected historian of science Naomi Oreskes I realized that I at least wanted to make a short comment on what I found most problematic about Eistenstein s climate book Science is not based on any individual no matter how smart that individual may be It s based on the collective wisdom the collective knowledge the collective work of all of the scientists who have worked on a particular problem This gets to Eisenstein s method which is eccentric in both the good and bad senses of the word It s good in that he offers original insights that just feel right on For example he comments that as a kid when he took car rides he noticed bugs splattered on the windshield "than he oes today This is a concrete sign that nature is ying because insects are such ancient and "he oes today This is a concrete sign that nature is Flyboy Action Figure Comes with Gasmask dying because insects are such ancient and inhabitants of the land This kind of simple buteep observation is where Eisenstein excelsWhere he excels less is in his long Teaching Feminist Activism: Strategies from the Field discussion of climate science I understand why heevotes ozens of pages to uestioning conventional science and listing footnotes of scholarly papers that few of his readers have heard of The first reason is just wishful thinking on his part Eisenstein wants to appeal to climate skeptics who are probably not going to read this book anyway His second reason is a stronger one and is essential to his whole approach to read this book anyway His second reason is a stronger one and is essential to his whole approach integrating humans with nature He wants to show that we should care about restoring water landscape and animals than about cutting fossil fuels to fix the cli. To see the broader picture beyond our short sighted and incomplete approach The rivers forests and creatures of the natural and material world are sacred and valuable in their own right not simply for carbon credits or preventing the extinction of one species versus another After all when you ask someone why they first became an environmentalist they’re likely to point to the river they played in the ocean they visited the wild animals they observed or the trees they climbed when
