Green Morality


Edward Flattau

Green Morality, renowned environmental columnist’s Edward Flattau’s fourth book, is a thorough and timely exploration of mankind’s moral obligation to create an environmentally sustainable global society. Along the way, he confronts moral hypocrisy, failed environmental movements and policies, globally disastrous scenarios, and reckless endangerment of the world’s species. The exploration of destructive and immoral environmental behavior includes coverage of numerous often little publicized actions that have adversely affected humanity and lower life forms. To avoid ultimate wholesale, permanent environmental destruction, Flattau advocates a major realignment of our value system and economic infrastructure, all in the name of creating an environmentally, economically sustainable society.

Crossing political and cultural boundaries, Flattau portrays environmentalism as a universal moral imperative that every person has a duty to uphold, not only for the salvation of the modern society, but for the entire planet. The analysis of environmentalism’s current situation and its history throughout the latter part of the Twentieth Century and early Twenty First includes uncovering the devastation committed by individuals, corporations and governments to the world’s species and fellow humans. In the process, he demonstrates how these destructive actions conflict with the very values that the offending parties espouse.

Flattau delivers starkly eminent solutions to avert environmental destruction that require a re-alignment of modern society’s value system and economic structure, transcending historical, political or institutional obligations.

The book will be available in September, 2010.
