Deep Design: Pathways to a Livable Future. By David Wann. Explores a new way of thinking about design, one that
asks "What is our ultimate goal?" before the first step has
been taken. It shows how designs that begin with such a question - whether in products, buildings, technologies, or communities - are sensitive to living systems, and can potentially accomplish their mission without the seemingly unavoidable side effects of pollution, erosion, congestion, and stress. "Deep designs" meet the criteria of renewability,
recyclability, and nontoxicity, and they are easy to understand and implement. As Kindle | More

Water: The Epic Struggle over Dams, Displaced People, and the Environment.
By Jacques Leslie. The 45,000 dams in the world have altered the speed of the planet's rotation, the tilt of its axis, and the shape of its gravitational field.

Each of these portraits shows how dams seduce national leaders with seeming bounties of water and power but end up producing blights on the citizenry and landscape. As Kindle | More... | Jacques
