THE LITTLE EARTH BOOK by James Bruges

Are you worried that we're killing our home, the Earth? You should be! In this uncompromising book you'll discover countless facts that the government and mass media sweep under the rug:

  • Already a third of the planet's "natural wealth" has been lost
  • If everyone lived as we do in the US, it would take four earth to support us
  • In the last 50 years - with the intensive use of pesticides - the US has doubled the amount of crops lost to pests
  • Three-fourths of all plant species have become extinct since 1900
  • Environmental disasters have left 80 million people as refugees
  • The number of people living on $2 a day in the world has risen by 50% in the last 20 years
  • Charging interest is a major contributor to inequity among nations and billions of people
  • Genetically modified crops have farmers using more herbicides and pesticides, not less 90% of the Earth's dwindling fresh water supply is consumed by industry
  • The top 1% of US households possess more wealth than the entire bottom 95%
  • Commercial banks, not the central government, create the bulk of America's currency
  • The arms trade is America's most heavily subsidized industry - yet a reduction in scale would create more jobs in the next five years
