In addition to students and professors of environmental studies and environmental ethics, sustainable business people, eco-survivalists, environmentalists, and conservationists will find author-activist Karel Rogers’ debut, Thinking Green: Ethics for a Small Planet, an invaluable guide that promotes important and critical dialogue on personal environmental ethics. In it, she ties together how scholars of disparate disciplines have approached as well as defined evolution and she identifies how “purposeful” living within the rules of visible matter in the universe, as individuals and as a species, will improve the quality of our lives.

In the vein of Jared Diamond’s Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed that reveals how cultures have adapted or perished throughout history and Thomas Friedman’s Hot, Flat, and Crowded, which brought attention to the major problems facing Americans and the globe, what’s extraordinary about Rogers’ work is it illustrates how our social constructs derive from our views and norms as individuals, which, in turn, are directly tied to our personal sense of ethical responsibility and morality. While Rogers’ message is, at times, alarming, it is one filled with hope that mankind will adapt so as geologic history continues to unfold it will include humans as a vital, synergistic component of life thriving on earth.
