About the Ebook
People too, are part of the complex interrelationship of all living things and the environment. Our survival depends on how well we conserve the system of life on Earth: the biosphere. In the last chapter we look at human ingenuity and some technologies and behaviours that are damaging the biosphere. We consider ways each of us can rethink our patterns of consumption to address these problems.
