Biological Nutrient Removal
Finding new ways of getting our energy and crating non-polluting technologies are critical. !!!
I read Partnering with Nature: The Wild Path to Reconnecting
with the Earth, a which won the top prize for Social Change in the “Best Books
2010” competition and the book highlights a shift in the way we work with
nature and the environment. From solar energy to harnessing the natural
cleaning powers of nature used in a “Living Machine”, that transforms waste
water to potable water using plants sunlight, the book explores some of the
most promising bio-industries of our time...it also highlights the rising
incidence of eco-entrepreneurs and bio-technologies that can transform the way
that we live and work.
"Partnering” also makes the link between human health
and the environment - citing a recent study which found that Americans spend
less than one hour a week outside!!! and asserts that this is leading to all
kinds of physical, emotional and spiritual ailments…..
I got a copy of the book at Amazon.com (http://tinyurl.com/yh4pkam)
and find the author's ideas to be quite revolutionary... Catriona MacGregor is
seen as a leader in a rising Eco-consciousness movement… While I do not agree
with everything – the book has a powerful message that illuminates the fact that
our connection to nature is a vital part of our existence.
