Five green books that everyone should read

It is good to see that green issues gradually are getting their space in bookstores, further evidence that this Cultural Revolution is taking hold everywhere. These issues are so variegated as to not be easily enclosed within a specific genre. When it comes to green books, in fact, it is not easy to understand what the boundaries are. There are books that can be called “green” only in the broadest sense, but they contain insights always current, to try to take back our future.

Here is a small guide to the best green books not to be missed.

Confessions of an eco-sinner, Fred Pearce. It ‘a journey to the origin of the things we buy every day: food, clothing, computers, telephones, cars, airplanes, games, in short, everything. The author follows all these things in their life cycle, tracing a strict budget of their ecological and social footprint.

The End of Poverty, Jeffrey D. Sachs. As richer countries could eliminate poverty from the planet. Poverty is not going to disappear by itself. It needs a pact between North and South, with an improvement in the quality of aid from first to the second.

Hot, flat and crowded, Thomas L. Friedman. What the world is today and how we can change it. The author recognizes the world’s three attributes: warm, referring to global warming; flat, due to globalization and new technologies; crowded, the problem of demographic bomb.

The turning point, Fritjof Capra. A parallel between the crisis of physics in the early twentieth century and the inability of contemporary societies to cope with global problems such as economic and ecological.

The forest of grouse, Mario Rigoni Stern. A book that describes in a simple but extremely charming the relationship between man and nature.
