Orland Park, IL, February 19, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Ever feel overwhelmed by the multiple, seemingly unrelated crises now facing us? Crises which run the gamut from climate change and extreme weather events, to cascading levels of pollution, environmental degradation and resource exploitation, to economic policies that do little to halt the forward momentum of social and economic injustice or the growing wealth gap between the richest of the rich and the rest of us?
In her new book "Climate Change, Land Use and Monetary Policy The New Trifecta" author Geraldine Perry makes the case that in order to find viable solutions for all these ills we must first accurately identify the problem. That problem is land use and the monetary policies which have driven it for millennia.
The first portion of the book focuses on the relationship between climate change and land use, particularly in the agriculture and energy arenas, challenging much of the conventional thinking about global warming and how best to heal our ailing world. Along the way the reader is introduced to a unique form of agriculture through which it is possible to rebuild the soil, reduce CO2 and associated pollution - and at the same time feed the world's billions many times over with nutrient dense foods. In addition, the reader learns about “land friendly” energy alternatives that bear little resemblance to today's so-called “clean” or “green” energy alternatives.
The last portion of the book explores the relationship between land use and monetary policy which the modern world inherited from ancient Mesopotamia. It is the extractive nature of this monetary system which encourages the high risk gambling characteristic of trifecta bets that destroys the land and deprives the people of the fruits of their labor. Land use is the problem and “land friendly” monetary reform is the solution.
Geraldine Perry has a Master's Degree in Education and an undergraduate minor in Library science, both of which have served her well in her research and writing. Her subsequent training as a a Certified Natural Health Consultant led to an increased interest in agriculture and the environment, and ultimately to the need for systemic monetary reform. This is her second book. Her first was entitled The Two Faces of Money, co-authored with Ken Fousek. More information for both books can be found at www.thetwofacesofmoney.com.
