We live in critical times. Choices we make daily will affect the future of life itself. Years from now children will study our era on the brink and ask their elders "When the planet was burning, what did you do?"

Problems as big as the world are daunting, but solutions are at hand, within each of us. The Earth Manifesto: Saving Nature with Engaged Ecology offers an approach to regain control of our environmental destiny by rediscovering our affinity for nature and then acting to preserve it.

David Tracey's first RMB Manifesto is rooted in common sense and revolves around the author's "Six Laws of Engaged Ecology", which moves us from theory, in concepts such as interdependence and the wilderness found inour minds, to practice with explanations of ground-truthing and the ways in which we can all work toward creating sustainable communities through shared environmental principles.

David Tracey is an environmental designer and author of four previous books, including Guerilla Gardening: A Manualfesto and the novel The Miracle Tree. As a journalist he has covered politics, culture and the environment from countries on five continents for media including the International Herald Tribune, The Economist, The Globe and Mail, CBC Radio and many others. He runs the environmental design company EcoUrbanist, which specializes in ecological approaches to urban development, and is executive director of the non-profit group Tree City, which is working to “help people and trees grow together.” David is a frequent public speaker in Canada and abroad on environmental and urban ecology issues. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.
