Fracking AmericaFracking America
Sacrificing Health and the Environment for Short-Term Economic Benefit
By Walter M. Brasch
Publisher: Greeley & Stone Publishers
Published: January 2016
ISBN: 978-0942991277
ASIN: B01G2NAIKK
Genre: Non-Fiction, Environment
Formats Available For Review:  pdf

In his most provocative and in-depth investigation to date, award-winning journalist Walter M. Brasch digs deep into the issue of fracking, and extracts the truth about the process and effects. FRACKING AMERICA is the most extensive and comprehensive look at fracking of any of the books about fracking, with a focus upon how fracking impacts the individual, both those who live near gas wells and those who can be affected but live far from major shale fields. Among the 25 chapters are those that look at health; environment; air and water pollution; economics; the politics and lobbying; agriculture; transportation of gas and its problems; media (how the media report fracking, how the industry and the anti-fracking protestors use the media); the large anti-fracking movement; theological base and climate change; renewable energy.

Ecology – Radical Mycology

Radical MycologyRadical Mycology
By Peter McCoy
Publisher: Chthaeus Press
Pub. Date: February 2, 2016
ISBN 9780986399602
Genre: Ecology
Formats Available For Review: Paperback

Fungi are found throughout the world, often playing critical roles at the center of all ecological webs. As culturally important foods and medicines, as well as instigators of religious practices, they have been intimately tied to the development and spread of human societies. And yet, despite their numerous influences on the history of the world, fungi are completely disregarded by the majority of people today.

In 2006 Peter McCoy co-founded Radical Mycology, a grassroots organization dedicated to increasing awareness of the many valuable ways to work with fungi for personal, societal, and ecological health. Nearly a decade later, McCoy has written Radical Mycology to share the wide array of skills and insights that have arisen from the organization’s international work to advance the science of appropriately applied mycology. Shattering commonly held beliefs on the value of the Fungal Queendom, Radical Mycology definitively explores the many reasons that fungi should no longer be ignored but instead honored and embraced for the many gifts they offer. The result is the most comprehensive and accessible book on the various aspects of mycology—the science of fungi—ever published.

Interwoven with insights into the incredible traits of fungi, Radial Mycology begins with chapters that explore the uniqueness of fungal biology, the critical ecological roles of micro and macro fungi, how to safely identify mushrooms, the value of lichens as medicines and indicators of environmental quality, and the significant influences that fungi have held on the evolution of human cultures. With this foundation laid, the reader is then equipped to work with the fungi directly. Techniques for making potent fungal medicines, growing fermenting fungi for food, and easily cultivating mushrooms with recycled tools (and yet still achieving lab-quality results) are explored in-depth. Subsequent chapters grow far beyond the limits of other books on mushrooms. Detailed information on the principles and practices of natural mushroom farming—largely influenced by the design system of permaculture—is presented along with extensive information on cultivating mycorrhizal fungi and the science of mycoremediation, the application of fungi to mitigate pollution in the environment and in our homes. The book ends with deeper insights into the social effects that fungi present from the reflection of mycelial networks in the design of whole societies to a rigorous examination of the history of psychoactive fungi.

Written for the beginner as well as the experienced mycologist, Radical Mycology is an invaluable reference book for anyone interested in Do-It-Yourself (or Do-It-Together) homesteading, community organizing, food security, natural medicine, grassroots bioremediation, and the evolution of human-fungal-ecological relations. More than a book on mushrooms, Radical Mycology is a call to ally with the fungi in all efforts to spawn a healthier world. Illustrated by the author and heavily referenced, this unprecedented book will undoubtedly remain a classic for generations to come.

Science & Religion – God Behind the Movie Screen

God Behind the Movie ScreenGod Behind the Movie Screen
By Allen D. Allen
Publisher: Publish Green
Published: August 2014
ASIN: B00MJ4REQ8
Genre: Non-fiction / Religion / Science
Formats Available For Review: kindle or pdf

In God Behind the Movie Screen, Allen uses popular movies to bring science and religion together.

Allen uses the gratuitous ignorance in several motion pictures to demonstrate how little the public cares about science. As a result of this disinterest in science, Christians often give literal interpretations to biblical parables. Consider, for example, water and wine. Each fluid is made up of different kinds of atoms and the difference between those atoms is a tremendous amount of energy. As a result, to turn water into wine is the same as exploding a large hydrogen bomb. However, Christians don’t take the Bible literally when it says that unruly children should be stoned to death. The problem is scientific ignorance, not religion.

Scientists need not be atheists though. Scientific studies of obedience have shown that most people will commit evil acts, such as harming or even killing innocent people, if it pleases a human authority figure. It’s better to have a belief in a higher power that forbids such behavior.

If you’ve ever pondered the big questions, such as, “Where did we come from?” and “What does it all mean?” you’ll enjoy reading this book. Whether you are religious or interested in science, this book is for you.

Science – Probing the Future: The art and science of prediction

Probing the Future: The art and science of predictionprobing the future
By David Delphenich
Publisher: Booklocker
ISBN: 978-1621418436
Published: March 2013
Pages: 420
Genre: Science
Format Available For Review: Print or PDF

In part one, some of the various attempts that have been made to predict the future – both serious and fanciful – are examined, including some famously bad predictions. In the second part, the approach of general systems theory is used to explain why some dynamical systems are so unpredictable. The Dust Bowl is used as an example of how complex systems can interact in ways that are hard to predict, as well as the stock market and the dynamics of the human mind.
