FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NEW BOOK SUGGESTS SOCIAL, SPIRITUAL REVAMP TO SAVE EARTH (AND OURSELVES)
Author Publishes Book on Living With Nature, Not Against It
[Victoria, BC – 4 April 2016] This year on Earth Day (April 22), the historic Paris Agreement that brought over 195 countries together to acknowledge the threat of climate change will be signed at the United Nations in New York. People worldwide are finally recognizing climate change as a serious and urgent threat to humankind and to our planet. As a retired microbiologist, W. Thomson Martin is no stranger to the changing landscape of the earth, and in his new book, From Democracy to Biocracy: Finding the River of Life, Martin explores how nature fits in with today's culture, politics, and the universal spirit, and how we fit in with nature.
The ideal book for our upcoming Earth Week (April 17-23), From Democracy to Biocracy: Finding the River of Life by W. Thomson Martin, not only argues for the necessary shift from democracy to biocracy, but offers insight into how to actually make this a reality. This book presents, in plain passionate language and saturated with real-life examples and quotations, the human experience of nature – past, present, and future. Without a “doomed” outlook, From Democracy to Biocracy illustrates the stark realities we face as a species and the horrors we have inflicted upon nature, but it also demonstrates how we can restore and reconnect with the earth to find healthier ways of being human.
"From Democracy to Biocracy suggests a beautiful, necessary path forward and supports its ideas with practical advice, solid research, and frequently lovely writing, both original and quoted." - Rhonda Hayter, author, editor, and creator of Abbie Adams
From Democracy to Biocracy: Finding the River of Life by W. Thomson Martin, produced by FriesenPress, is available for order from most major online book retailers, including the FriesenPress Bookstore and Amazon. The eBook is available for Amazon Kindle, iTunes Bookstore, Chapters/Indigo Kobo, and GooglePlay.
