Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

This groundbreaking book cuts through the pessimism and denial that pervade today's discussions of sustainability and invites readers to visualize a verdant and prosperous future for humanity and all the living things that share our planet. As a practical guide, it offers a process for making our current lifestyles more sustainable and inspires us to look beyond the immediate obstacles to nurture the "destination fixation" that stimulates all humanity's greatest achievements.
In the lives and accomplishments of farmers, gardeners, inventors and entrepreneurs, Beautiful and Abundant finds a path toward a world vision we can proudly pass on to future generations - a vision that is aesthetically beautiful, economically abundant, ethically fair and irresistibly contagious.
Humanity is at a turning point. Only one species in the universe can recognize its own impact on its habitat, so far as we know, and we are that species. In the early years of the 21st Century we face the definitive human challenge - sustaining our quality of life on this miraculous, but finite sphere we call Earth.
Tragically, a lot of human energy is being squandered in conflict over short-term environmental obstacles. People debate symptoms and solutions but societies persistently fail to offer positive incentives for change. To harness the full power of human imagination and community initiative we need a positive vision for humanity's future. We need a believable collective vision for the beautiful, abundant planet where our grandchildren will live.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas This book is will make you smile and change your outlook 18 de mayo de 2012

When we bought this book, we were planning a medium-term project - taking a piece of land we own near San Antonio Texas and turning it into a near-self sufficient homestead. We live in Australia so the project is being done significantly by remote control with the assistance of friends and family in the area. While we had an overall goal, we didn't have a "mission statement". This book gave us that mission statement and a lot more. A very positive, uplifting book, Bryan has created a picture that we have used well over the past couple of years as our project has gone from a dream to a nearly built reality. While we're still a couple of years from being back in Texas, our project makes significant progress year on year and we use the "measuring sticks" defined in the book to evaluate our many decisions. I highly recommend this book, no matter what your goals or plans. Reading this book and taking it to heart will change your outlook on life.

A brilliant and inspiring work. Welch has done us all a great service by writing this thing, and I can think of no book in recent memory that we have discussed as much or from which we have drawn so many positive ideas. A must read.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Interesting arguments 13 de diciembre de 2013

This book has interesting and unusual arguments, and for that reason it deserves to be read.

I have just two criticisms:

First, as others have pointed out, much of the book is a justification of the author's lifestyle. He compares his free range meat production with monoculture vegetable production (e.g. of soybeans) and concludes that meat eating is good for the planet. This comparison is unfair, because he compares the very best of one production with the very worst of another; his very rare free range production (only a tiny fraction of U.S. meat is produced this way) with the very worst of vegetable production (monoculture). If I compared my back yard vegetable garden with a CAFO, then vegetable production would certainly come out on top.

The other criticism is his one brief mention of his "fairness": "I don't hire illegal aliens." This apparent non sequitur betrays a profound ignorance of immigration law. If you want to be fair, you _should_ try to hire undocumented workers (by the way, no human being is "illegal"). Only relatively rich foreigners can get visas to come to the U.S.; the poor laborers are left out, and that is inherently unfair.
