9780992997922: Homo Sapiens: An Appraisal of Modern Humans

Reviews "The book is destined to fill a gulf between the hard depressing science of climate change and ecology and an idyllic world where consequences are for tomorrow, not today... Rajan provides a lens to show us a world where we fail to take action. A world where we fail to learn the lessons of our past (and our present)." Dr. John Abrahams, Professor, Thermal and Fluid Sciences, St. Thomas School of Engineering, MN. From the back cover Why Homo sapiens, a seemingly intelligent species, continues to irreparably damage the Earth, so vital to not only our own survival but to that of all the intertwined living things around us, is passionately and insightfully addressed here by Rajan Jaisinghani. The book encompasses almost everything related to Homo sapiens-the environment, collective behaviour and psychology, population and economics, governance and politics, philosophy and art. It discusses the difficult steps we might take to begin to ameliorate this damage, the necessary pre-requisites for such repair, and ends with a semi-fictional chapter on life in 2050. Uniquely, the book uses the conditions in India as a warning to the rest of the world; India is akin to a laboratory experiment in which extreme population is the dominant parameter. While it is technically accurate and includes much research, the book is written in a style easily understood by everyone. It is a must read for anyone interested in a realistic and logistical view of the trends that have been developing over the last 200 years and which look set to continue into the future.
