Climate change and resource depletion are two of the most daunting problems mankind may face in the coming decades. However while both appear to be relatively new phenomena, they are related to growing problems that date back decades, if not hundreds of years. In Nature's Revenge, author Edmund Blake takes an in-depth look at the influence developments in the natural world have exerted on human history, and conversely, the influence human activities have had on nature. Blake also undertakes an exploration of the ways in which the changing perception of nature reveals the dominant values that inform a particular civilization. His book provides evidence demonstrating that the way in which nature is viewed during a given period can have genuine lasting real-world implications. Nature's Revenge ultimately attempts to provide a rational and objective exploration of our immediate future here on Earth with the climate-related challenges we face. The author also has included an epilogue that considers mankind's chances of being able to rise to meet these challenges in the coming years. Edmund Blake was born in the UK and brought up in the county of Essex. Blake studied French and English literature at university, and completed a doctoral thesis on philosophy and political ideologies linked to Bergsonism. Currently he resides in a rural area of France. Nature's Revenge was inspired by his disdain for the exploitation of nature by multi-national companies and certain self-serving members of the political elite.
