            The Devouring Dragon: How China's Rise Threatens The Natural World
             

            The Devouring Dragon: How China's Rise Threatens The Natural World (Trade Paperback / Paperback, New Zealand edition)

            By Simons, Craig

            "China is transforming our natural world at an alarming rate. It is the world's largest market for endangered wildlife, poached from India and Africa. It is the top importer of tropical timber, harvested illegally in Indonesia. In Brazil, farmers clear large swaths of the Amazon ...rainforest to meet Chinese demand for soybean oil and beef. In the U.S., toxic levels of mercury originating from Chinese power plants have polluted a third of American lakes and nearly a quarter of its rivers. Craig Simons' new book, "The devouring dragon", looks at how China, in its ascendance, has become the world's worst polluting superpower, creating a devastating environmental impact worldwide. Simons argues that China's most significant impacts over the twenty-first century will be not only on jobs, corporate profits and political alliances, but also on our natural world. "The devouring dragon" combines in-depth reporting with wide-ranging interviews, scientific research, and travel to some of the most beautiful places on earth. It amply demonstrates the urgency of the issue and also hope for the future. With the Obama administration placing China among its top three foreign policy priorities, Craig Simons argues eloquently for ways in which the United States and China can forge a new era of cooperation, support emerging environmental groups within China, and begin to ensure a sustainable future for the planet." --Publisher description.

            Food isn't just what we eat, it connects us to our family, our community and the world around us. We live in a challenging time in history, facing unprecedented global crises, and yet, local food initiatives by small farmers, community workers, and activists offer solutions to th...ese large complex problems. Solutions at the local level can give us personal and community agency, connecting us with one another and inspiring new ways of thinking, sharing and creating value.The problems with global corporate capitalist exploitation are becoming more and more evident. Local food and strong community networks can provide alternatives to this destructive system, as well as many wider benefits for society and the environment. This book shows alternative food networks, food sovereignty, and social economics, through case-studies or real people and communities in both urban and rural New Zealand, as well as a global lens. These inspiring stories and helpful insights provide a compass that can help us to navigate towards a more equitable and sustainable future.
