To help us do that Caroline welcomes the return of Ellen LaConte, author of Life Rules!- Why so much is going wrong everywhere at once and how Life teaches us to fix it. Invaluable book that we should all have (and we’re offering it as a pledge incentive, during our Fun Dive, o Lucky listeners, and the author of the novel Afton about protecting life.
We are also featuring as pledge incentive with “Green Yoga” by Elaine Pierce, for which Ellen wrote the blurb “Even if you don’t plan to practice yoga, this book may help you to pull yourself together in a world that’s falling apart.”)
Most of us have forgotten the single most important lesson a species living on this planet can learn, a lesson we used to know by heart: Life rules. We don’t.. It’s not too late to remember. The list of eco-nomic rules that guide the activities of other species toward long-term survival and have allowed Life to last for so long on this small, often-challenged planet is surprisingly short and simple. It’s not too late for us to learn—and obey–them. Life rules out species that don’t.
