The sections include: How will we feed ourselves? These are all questions that we will likely be presented with in the forseeable future if we continue to pollute and use resources at current rates. The first section I absolutely loved, especially as I am really into sustainable agriculture.
She mentions permaculture, the way of farming that tries to mimic a nature ecosystem, as well as Masanobu Fukuoka's One Straw Revolution also on my summer reading list , which is a farming method that involves little human manipulation.
The second section which focused on harnessing energy, however, made me realize that she is a biologist and I am not , and although the overall information was interesting, there was a whole lot of detail on the process of photosynthesis way more than I care to remember. I started to feel like this chapter was long and drawn out and found my attention span waivering. The section on how will we make things again had some interesting ideas again had some fascinating concepts, like talking about how mussels adhere to rocks underwater and how spider silk is stronger than steel yet made without intense heat, pressure, or nasty chemicals.
However, I once again started to feel bogged down by the overload of biology that went with the concepts. How will we heal ourselves was awesome.
My favorite chapter of this book. It talked about finding natural medicines by watching how animals heal themselves; what they eat when they have a parasite infection for example. There is even a section on a certain type of monkey that seems to be able to choose the gender of their offspring by eating alkaline or acidic food during mating season.
