Earth My Body Water My Blood

Ottawa, Ontario (RPRN) 04/16/11 — New Book for 2011 Earth Day – April 22.

Earth My Body, Water My Blood edited by Dr. Ian Prattis www.ianprattis.com

Knowledge about ecosystems, globalization, environmental ethics and the direct threat of Global Warming is applied to a proposed urban eco-community in Ottawa, Canada. The insights, diligence and brilliance of a senior ecology class at Carleton University in Ottawa provide the foundation for this collection – garnished with further contributions from Dr. Prattis, consultants and elders. The substance is how to start and sustain an eco-community using Ottawa as an initial platform. Each section of the book has a “Note From The Editor” to provide wider context. A continuation of the editor’s ground breaking best seller – Failsafe: Saving The Earth From Ourselves. www.failsafebook.com

The book is organized around the great elements – Earth, Water, Air and Fire. The fifth great element – Space – is to penetrate humanity’s consciousness about a better way to live with Mother Earth. This research into establishing eco-communities reflects the shift in mindset required to salvage the global ecosystem for human habitation. Our present values and patterns of consumption are the architects of the present global ecological emergency. We are our environment. Wherever we live, our mind has to be focused on living as one component of Gaia’s ecosystem.

Earth contributions are on Community Supported Agriculture and Green Building Standards. Adaptation, fluidity and cohesion are in the detailed report on Water Management. Air contributions are about the ideological basis of a successful eco-community. The illumination and clarity of Fire introduces the Global Ecological Village network (GEN); the Carbon Credit Market; followed by Ecological Education in Schools; and Eco-tourism. Space has the aboriginal voice of Grandfather William Commanda and his vision for an aboriginal healing and peace centre in Ottawa, preceded by Wisdom of the Elders to provide a template about sacred ecology.

The book is released on Earth Day 2011 – April 22.

Retail price: $18.00. www.baico.ca  Order Page.
