There has never been a greater need for the raw, eye-opening awareness Tony Juniper brings to the table with his educating contribution to our broken society.  What Has Nature Ever Done for Us? Illustrates a previously unexampled notion as stated by author Bill McKibben, that “our economy is a subset of our natural world, and not the other way around.”

The statistics presented in this book will astound you and ignite a deeper appreciation for the planet we inhabit and all it provides.  Whether you feel you already have a developed sense of gratitude or you think the tree hugger’s talk is a bunch of hub bub, this book is for you!  Juniper offers a perspective like no other, taking us outside of the box and connecting the dots, one by one right before our very eyes.

Our capacity for the relationship between an effective, productive society and Earth is more vast than imagined.  This book will cultivate that relationship, stimulating and motivating us to take our Earth back and drive us to a grounded economy!  What is it worth to you?
